Evidence of Multiple Windows 8 SKUs

Windows 8

Tom Warren reports for The Verge:

Winunleaked posted several screenshots of a post-beta version of Windows 8 today, documenting a “Windows 8 Pro” edition that includes Windows To Go and an option, through Windows Anytime Upgrade, to add extra features with a “new edition of Windows” — indicating that the Professional edition might not be the top SKU in Microsoft’s plans.

Microsoft’s Windows 8 Consumer Preview included references to a “Professional Plus” Windows 8 edition, along with the traditional Starter, Home Basic, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions.

Just when you thought the folks in Redmond might’ve gotten the right idea.
