Microsoft announces Windows 8 name official, three editions only

Microsoft has officially released its Windows 8 version which will be available to the consumer in three version: Windows 8 (standard or Home edition), Windows Pro and Windows RT.

In an effort to make purchasing Windows 8 easier for customers to know what edition will work best for them, Microsoft has also outlined each version in comparison. The majority of consumers will purchase Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro for PCs and Tablets (32/64 bit).

For PCs and tablets powered by x86 processors (both 32 and 64 bit), Microsoft will have two editions: Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro — with Windows 8 being the most probable choice for most. Those currently running Windows 7 Pro/Ultimate will be able to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro, while Windows 7 Starter, Home, Basic and Home Premium can upgrade to Windows 8 (standard).

Windows 8 RT (Run Time), however, will only be available on pre-installed PCs and tablets powered by ARM processors, and will help enable new thin/lightweight form factors. Windows 8 RT will also include touch-optimization for desktop versions of the new MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
