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.

the different Windows versions are not simply builds with different build configuration arrangements.

The only build that I can see that would be significantly different is ARM. It's not 1995 anymore, we have modern tools to ensure exactly that the OS can be modular. If that makes charging different prices for different modules rape is a different story but you'd be kidding yourself if you don't think MS made 8 modular enough to enable different editions with ease.

absurdly cheap is very alluring.

I thought that's why we have sweatshops.
