Windows 10 Editions

Windows 10 has following major editions:

  1. Home
  2. Pro
  3. Enterprise
  4. Education

There are some other editions like Enterprise LTSC and a few others but these editions are not a part of regular release. Microsoft sometimes release these editions and sometimes skips them. Besides skipping, Microsoft can replace or terminate such editions. So users should focus on regular editions which are released with each version update and get latest updates regularly.

Microsoft has not released Windows 10 Ultimate edition just like Windows 7 Ultimate. It might never release because there was no ultimate edition released for Windows 8 as well.

Let’s have a look how each edition is different from others and which edition of Windows 10 is best for you.

Windows 10 Home

Home edition is the basic edition of Windows 10. It is suitable for normal computing. If you use your computer for general purposes and simple office works then you can use home edition. Don’t underestimate Home edition by its name because it is not that basic as you might consider. Unlike Windows 7 home editions, Windows 10 Home has more freedom and features. For example, one limitation of Home is that it supports only up to 128 GB RAM memory on 64-bit version. Seriously, this is 2019 and there is no 128 GB memory available in markets. Maximum 16 GB RAM is installed in best gaming computers.

Windows 10 Enterprise edition is suitable for organizations who are either dealing in IT profession or has a dedicated team of IT professionals to manage complicated tasks. It is generally observed that Enterprise edition is not suitable for individuals and non-IT literate organizations.
