From what we are seeing so far, it seems that Microsoft is planning to stick to mulitple versions of Windows 7 despite the strong criticism they received with the many versions of Vista that were released. These are the three rumored upgrade paths from Vista to Windows 7:

  • Windows Vista Home Premium Edition -> Windows 7 Home Premium Edition
  • Windows Vista Business Edition -> Windows 7 Professional Edition
  • Windows Vista Ultimate Edition -> Windows 7 Ultimate Edition

We already know for sure that Windows 7 Enterprise is part of the lineup. If these three rumored upgrade paths are indeed true, then it is very possible that there could be a Home Basic edition again if there is a “Home Premium” edition. This brings the list back to four editions for consumers, and just one for business users. (story Link)
