Microsoft introduces the six different versions of Windows 10

Windows 10 will release six different versions to 190 countries and it will support 111 languages

Up until now, Microsoft has said very little about the different versions for Windows 10. Today on the Windows blog Microsoft has detailed the different editions. The software company has decided to use one operating system across all different types of devices, including mobile phones. Unfortunately, a release date for Windows 10 still has not been announced.

Windows 10 Home is meant for PCs and tablets in houses for use by families. The Mobile version is to be used with small, mobile touchscreen-enabled devices and will feature Continuum for sharing between devices. Windows 10 Pro is meant for small businesses, and is similar to the Home edition, but it will allow small businesses to manage the different business apps they need to operate.

Enterprise edition is for medium and large-scale businesses, offering advanced information security and management systems for apps. Windows 10 Education will release for schools, helping administrators, teachers, and students stay connected. Students can in some cases upgrade to Windows 10 Education if his or her school has a certain plan allowing for it. Finally, Mobile Enterprise edition is for businesspeople on the go, giving security, productivity, and great functionality while away from the office.

Windows 10 is going to be the last major operating system release from Microsoft, as they plan to incrementally update it throughout the coming years. A release date is expected for this summer, so hopefully it will see the light of day before the end of the third quarter. More details about each version can be found on the blog itself.
