Windows 8 Release Preview to launch with default, Pro and Media Center editions

We may be able to choose which edition of Windows 8 to install, according to a new rumour. The Release Preview is expected to launch with 3 editions, that being the default (Core), Pro and Pro Media Center edition. Each edition includes additional features from one another, and will probably vary in price.

Microsoft may be planning to allow us to choose which edition of Windows 8 to install, according to a new rumour. The Release Preview is rumoured to come with three editions, a default (core), Pro and Pro Media Center edition. Obviously, the core edition of Windows 8 will be baseline, including no additional features.

The Pro edition of Windows 8 should include more features, and the Pro Media Center edition will include all that of the Pro edition, plus Media Center.

We’re not too sure whether what you see above is real, for all we know, Microsoft could just launch the Release Preview with just one Release Preview. But that is unlikely, since this is the last version of previews before the official launch, so Microsoft need to get it’s last bit of testing done.
