Now I think Microsoft made a huge mistake in creating so many versions of Windows Vista. Those who weren’t techies (and even a few of us techies) were incredibly confused as to what was what.

Now granted it does look like they’ve streamlined things just a bit and are putting all the features of one version in the next higher up version. So if you pay for the highest version you get the whole shebang.
But you know what? I miss the days where there was just one version of Windows and it took care of every type of machine.
I can understand creating two so you have a stripped down version for developing countries, but 6 versions?
