Default Windows 8 to be Offered in 4 Editions

Late Monday Microsoft revealed details about the versions of Windows 8 it plans to offer late this year, announcing in a blog post that it will sell three editions for Intel PCs Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise and one Windows 8 RT (formally known as Windows on ARM) for ARM-based devices.

So they went back to the scheme when they released XP. Home & Pro and Enterprise.

Good. But lets hope in the Pro edition the Metro UI is gone.

No kidding, they should name it Windows: Tablet Edition and start from the ground up on a new OS.

Ah, but it's not just the tablet edition, it's the tablet, Xbox, and windows Phone edition. It's really only on desktops that metro isn't appropriate.

I would like to add that I hate the metro-esque UI on the xbox. >:|
(not that my xbox works atm, but RROD is a different hassle apart from metro)

Well unless they scrap the Metro UI for desktops, I know I will be telling everyone to stay on Windows 7 at work. I know there are people that want to switch but I think that switching will be a very bad idea unless Metro is gone or able to be turned off at the least.

Not getting it until they get rid of Metro. What a POS that is.
