Re: Windows 8 vs. Windows 8 Pro vs. Windows RT

Windows 8, Microsoft confirms that the trade name, that will primarily two editions: Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. Home Edition not so, no starter, let alone Ultimate. To choice between the two will be based on the features, Windows 8 Pro has more features than that of Windows 8:
? BitLocker and BitLocker To Go
? Boot from a VHD file
? Customer Hyper-V (virtualization)
? Connecting to a Domain
? EFS (Encrypting File System)
? Political groups
? Remote Desktop (host)
Too bad though: the Windows Media Center will be available as a media economy pack for the Pro edition. This means not only that the package itself will be paid, but especially the most expensive edition of Windows 8 will be mandatory.

Re: Windows 8 vs. Windows 8 Pro vs. Windows RT

Windows RT. If the name does not speak to you is that it is the trade name of Windows on ARM, or WOA. This very special Windows 8 will therefore not only on PCs and tablets equipped with ARM processors. As the Enterprise Edition, it is not possible to find separately on the shelves of a store. Windows RT is broadly a classic Windows 8. However, it loses some functionality on one side, and the other wins. It does not and Storages Spaces, since a single logical storage unit will be on the shelves. The Media Player is not available either, but it is assumed that another application will fulfill the role of media player.

Re: Windows 8 vs. Windows 8 Pro vs. Windows RT

Windows 8 Enterprise includes the following exclusive features:

"Windows To Go", a portable USB installation of the operating system;

At the same time fits Microsoft's rights in Software Assurance accordingly: Each employee with a covered by Software Assurance Company PC is automatically also a Windows-To-Go license and can be as safe and employer-managed Windows 8 environment on his Start your home computer. In addition, there is an additional charge more "companion device" licenses that allow employees with up to four devices on the private possession of either Windows or To Go VDI can access the corporate environment. If a tablet or a computer with an ARM processor and Windows RT is used as a "companion" for Software Assurance company computers, but this requires no additional license for VDI access.

Re: Windows 8 vs. Windows 8 Pro vs. Windows RT

In Windows 8 will include many features plus an updated version of Windows Explorer, Task Manager, better multi-monitor support and the ability to switch languages on the fly, which was previously only available in Enterprise and Ultimate Windows. As for China, and a small group of selected emerging markets, Microsoft will offer a local language edition.

Instead Windows 8 Pro has more features like encryption services, virtualization, management domains and groups as well as access to remote desktop tools among others. On the other hand, Windows 8 Pro is designed to "help technology enthusiasts and business professionals to get a broader set of technologies 8? ? ? Windows, the company says. Includes all the features of Windows 8, besides the characteristics of encryption, PC virtualization management and control connectivity.

Windows 8 for ARM processors bear the name Windows RT, which can be achieved only factory pre-installed on computers and tablets with ARM processors. Microsoft declares Windows RT will be quite light and efficient battery use.

If you use Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic or Home Premium you upgrade to Windows 8 without formatting the disk, whereas if you use Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate versions will update to Windows 8 Pro.

Re: Windows 8 vs. Windows 8 Pro vs. Windows RT

A look at the feature list of Windows Pro will help you decide whether it is worthwhile for professional users an upgrade. Most of the features that are found exclusively in the Pro version can be used quickly. Others need a little preparation, such as Hyper-V virtualization. This must be activated manually, also has a short list of system requirements to be considered. Professional users will be happy about it yet: The feature Hyper-V was previously only available for servers. In Windows 8 it replaces the weak virtualization tools of the previous desktop versions. There is no innovation is needed with the BitLocker hard drive encryption. The version of "BitLocker To Go 'was previously available only for Ultimate and Enterprise versions of Windows. For Windows 8, there is the feature now available for the mainstream business version of the operating system. There is something for USB flash drives, and works without any additional hardware.
