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.

"Advanced Security" Probably refers to BitLocker, as Group Policy stuff come as part of domain login capabilities of Pro. (and, IIRC, GP settings are even accessible on Home versions). That is something that has traditionally come as part of "Ultimate" versions, which Microsoft is apparently doing away with (Finally!).

Also, that is something that should be available in all versions.

Edit: Oops. should read the whole chart first. BitLocker comes with Pro (Finally!)
