Windows 10 has seven editions – here’s how to tell which is for you

After announcing seven different versions of Windows 10, some Internet users took to the comments with their disdain of Microsoft’s often profuse release system while others argued that its extensive offerings are necessary for businesses seeking advanced customization options. In any case, it’s irrefutably important that our readers understand the intended purpose of each edition — from Home all the way to Mobile Enterprise.

Windows 10 Home

Meant for the everyday consumer, Windows 10 Home brings all of the essential features expected of the OS to laptops, desktops, and 2-in-1 computers, ideal for at-home personal use.

In a seemingly endless lists of firsts for the upcoming operating system, Windows 10 will pioneer the successor to Internet Explorer, named Microsoft Edge (previously dubbed Project Spartan). Although Windows 10 Home will serve as the base option for users looking to surf the net, the new upcoming Internet browser will accompany every edition of the forthcoming OS. For touch-capable devices, Windows 10 Home will be compatible with Continuum, which allows users to navigate desktop functionalities with the simplistic look and feel of a mobile platform.

Along with the expected general purpose apps like Photos, Maps, Mail, Calendar, Music, and Video, the entry-level Windows 10 Home will even add Xbox One integration, allowing gamers like myself the ability to access our game libraries from the comfort of any preferred Windows 10-powered device. All of these features will also be available in other versions of Windows.

In short: This is the version most consumers will want for their PC.
