AV software for my MBP will be Symantec for Macintosh 10.2. How about your book?

Smart move. Brick-and-mortar has great potential to add another revenue stream for Microsoft. Unlike Apple, they can partner with as many hardware vendors as they need. This is win-win for software and hardware alike.

What a waste. Why?

I've got real high hopes for Windows 7. Because with 200 XP systems on my network, I desperately need an upgrade path that doesn't include Vista. From what I hear, Windows 7 will have a framework similar to that of OS X where they offer modular backwards compatibility without sacrificing performance of the new OS. Fingers crossed!

Yorick, you make a great point on Apple using the same kernel. We could easily say that Apple's upgrades are similar to what Microsoft is doing with the upgrade from Vista to 7. But what we don't see is Apple marketing 'version' upgrades as a new OS -- like what we're seeing now from Microsoft.

Windows 7 begs this question: Could MS have wrapped up its new Windows 7 features under future service packs for Vista? Maybe keeping R&D monies focused on a truly 'new' OS?

Or Is Windows 7 just a revenue generator for MS?

Quick update - EDS promptly removed their press release sometime soon after this article was published. It can now be found through Google cache.

You're dead wrong. Microsoft issued a press release Feb. 3, 2009 that -not so clearly- spells out 6 editions. (read Mike Ybarra's answer to the third question) http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/features/2009/...

The Starter version seems pointless. And what's the difference between Enterprise and Ultimate? I'm sure that somewhere [mixed up] in their marketing message, Microsoft have an obscure technical reason for splitting out into so many Windows 7 versions.
