Windows After months of maintaining that it had not yet finalized its Windows Vista line up, Microsoft seems finally to have decided upon a half dozen core Vista versions. According to a posting on its Web site, Microsoft is readying six core Vista packages, or SKUs, plus two additional releases customized for the European Union that won't bundle in Windows Media Player, as ordered by European antitrust regulators.

Msft is coming out with six core versions? My guess is that the standard version, the version that ships to most home PCs, will prove inadequate within a few months.

Fortunately, msft will provide an upgrade version for $149.

"inadequate" to what?
It should be basically the same as the actual XP's Home Version in terms of functionality for the home user. The basic difference from now is the Media Center and Tablet Editions moving to the other editions plus some new features distributed too between them too.
