For many consumers, Windows 8 will be the right choice.

For China and a small set of select emerging markets, we will offer a local language-only edition of Windows 8.

Windows 8 Pro is designed to help tech enthusiasts and business/technical professionals obtain a broader set of Windows 8 technologies. It includes all the features in Windows 8 plus features for encryption, virtualization, PC management and domain connectivity. Windows Media Center will be available as an economical “media pack” add-on to Windows 8 Pro.

Microsoft Search Filter

I recently was doing some Windows 7 related searches on Microsoft.com and was going to use the filter to knock it down to only Windows 7 related items, much to my surprise it doesn’t look like Microsoft has updated their filter for awhile:

Microsoft Search Filter

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Office 2007 nor Office 2010 are options.
