Windows While I was fast asleep, Microsoft unveiled the SKUs for Windows 8 - and we're in for a surprise. Yes, after years and years of fully deserved mockery for releasing 343 versions of each Windows release, the company has seen the light and reduced everything to just four - of which only two, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro, will be freely available in stores.

Servers now have their own versions (by now I mean since XP). Windows 8 will not have any server versions. I probably agree with Thom, most "Pro" features are extra options, and not something that would get in way of a normal user, so they could have been in the standard release to simply things.
