Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

RE[4]: Windows 7 Versions

You forgot a couple:

Windows XP Media Center Edition
Windows XP Tablet PC edition
Windows XP Professional x64
Windows XP 64 (for Itanium)

as well as the various K and N versions for the EU and Korea, without Windows Media Player and other software.

There was also "Windows for Legacy PCs". XP was not in the name but it was on the splash screen at boot and everywhere else. It was XP without the NULL driver to prevent server software from running.
