Windows Vista to ship in 13 versions?

Posted on Monday, September 26 2005 @ 13:01:22 CEST by

We already knew Windows Vista will come in lots of flavours but it seems there will be even more than we already expected. It looks like it will be 13.
Amidst the hubbub about the seven variants, there is one question that no one seems to ask, not that Microsoft would answer anyway, and that is the 32/64 bit question. The lowest end part, W43WC (Windows For Third World Countries) is only 32 bit, but that is wholly understandable. The rest will pretty much have to come in both 32 and 64 bit variants.

That brings the number up to not seven flavours but to 13, and twice that for a separate upgrade version. And that combo is enough to make any retailer, distributor, or system integrator shudder and lose lots of sleep. Not that they get much anyway.
But it is possible Microsoft will ship all versions on a single DVD. Read more at The Inquirer
