2. Windows Vista Home Basic
3. Windows Vista Home Premium
4. Windows Vista Business
5. Windows Vista Small Businss

8. N Editions

Limitied functionality and cheapest one is Windows Starter 2007, only targeted at low-end and low-cost PC. For Home user there's two options now, compare to one version of Windows XP Home Edition. For business or office users, there're three options now. And Ultimate edition, combine Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Enterprise.
