Default Win7 Features table (explained)

http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=14198

According to this table, Ultimate will have "Unspecified features"

I might end up with 7 Pro.

Default Win7 versions-features table (finally)

finally a simple table of the differences between the Windows 7 SKU's

remember, we are really only going to have a choice between Home Premium and Home Professional as Ultimate will be limited in distribution, and the others are restricted to emerging markets or corporate use.
(more clarification from MS needed on Ultimate, but it sounds like it may be a step-up after the primary install in most cases. MS is assuming very small % usage from other readings)

merged...

so will these other windows versions actually lack these features or will they just be a registry tweak away?

I've never used any of the features that aren't available in Home Premium. That'll probably be the most wide spread version.

I think the stuff like Domain and GPO might not be there, but I think something like RDP can probably be added.

The only real feature that might be useful over Pro is the ability to load VHDs, but I'm just wondering what the difference is between using "enterprise" and just using virtual pc.

I wonder what "Unspecified features" will mean, and will it be worth the extra dough?

This **** is gay. Just make one version that does everything. You can install/uninstall components at your leisure.

Shouldn't they also compulsorily bundle this new OS with a PC (HW)? Like selling it only with 5 horrible and unflexible "Microsoft PC" configurations, which are severely overpriced, do not possess even basic ports, have marketing aimed at insulting everybody else, while sueing other companies trying to install Win 7 on their (non-Microsoft) PCs?

That would just raise the price for the majority of people. . .
