Microsoft (MSFT) discloses Windows 8 will come in 3 editions: Windows 8 (consumer-oriented), Windows 8 Pro (meant for business users and enthusiasts), and Windows RT (meant for systems running ARM-based CPUs). Windows 7, by contrast, is available in 6 editions. Early feedback on Windows 8, due this fall, has largely been positive; PC makers are hoping it will finally let them sell legit rivals to the iPad.
