Is highest version of win10 enterprise version? What is difference between different versions of win7 system
Windows7 system, six editions in total, namely: Starter (Primary Edition), Home Basic (Home Basic), Home Premium (Home Premium), Professional (Professional Edition), Enterprise (Enterprise) and Ultimate ( final edition).
The price is definitely different, not to mention price, I think there are very few people who actually buy this, they are all same as me, they like hacking Dafa, yeah~
Feature breakdown is as follows: Basic Edition
1. Initial Version (Main Version)
The version with fewest features lacks even many major common features such as support for only 32-bit processors rather than 64-bit, no Windows Media Center and Mobile Center which are best used in win7; even basic desktop background replacement is limited.
So what's use of this version?
It doesn't appear to be targeted at individual users, system is only used on very low-end devices, and it can only be installed on certain hardware.
Thus, regardless of home or office use, this version of system is not considered.
2. Home Basic
The home version is actually divided into two versions: regular version and extended version, which is enough.
Regular version, cheapest price, 399 yuan.
It seems that there are no advantages at all, so let's talk about its disadvantages: there are limitations on Aero special effects; join, but do not let create.
Microsoft has also stated that this version is only available in China, India, and Brazil.
Each time I see this sentence, I dream about growth of internal system.
3. Home Premium
Home Premium Edition has all basic features, but it still has drawbacks: it doesn't support Windows Domain, XP Mode, and multiple languages.
This version belongs to many laptops, desktops and pre-installed genuine systems purchased by individuals.
4. Professional (Professional version)
The professional version should be considered most common and can be easily activated.
Basic and frequently used functions are available. In addition to all above features, extended home version has remote desktop, network backup, location-aware printing, presentation mode, active directory and domain support, encrypted file system, etc.
Pro 64-bit system supports up to 192 GB of memory.
Computers and laptops from many manufacturers come pre-installed with professional editions.
5. Enterprise (Enterprise edition)
The name speaks for itself. This is enterprise version. In addition to functions of all above versions, there are many more functions that can only be used at enterprise level, for example: data management, data sharing. , data security, UNIX application support, BitLocker drive encryption, branch cache, etc.
Normal users may not understand these functions because they are not used at all.
Enterprise Edition, basically Microsoft provides enterprise licenses to activate system.
6. Ultimate (flagship version)
Flagship version, many friends who like to tinker with computer system have to say, this is what I installed.
The name of flagship version gives people a top notch feeling, and point is that flagship version and enterprise version are on same level and have same features as enterprise version.
The difference is only in the authorization method and a small number of application services.
Home Premium and Pro can be upgraded to Ultimate.
7. How to choose
So, with so many versions, what should you choose?
In terms of Microsoft's marketing and distribution efforts, most common are Home Premium Edition and Professional Edition. The Home Premium Edition is for home computers, while Professional Edition is for business users.
However, Caterpillar does not recommend Home Premium (except when purchasing a computer). If we usually use it, we recommend Professional edition.
Why is flagship version not recommended?
One reason is that flagship version has more features than pro version that normal users can't use at all, but those redundant features will also take up a lot of CPU and memory.
Another reason is activation. The split activation method mentioned by Caterpillar in previous release can easily activate professional version, but flagship version does not support it (the flagship version also has an activation method).
Of course, having said that, install version you like, difference is difference, and personal preference is personal preference, you can use whichever is pleasing to eye.

The win10 version is particularly complex, and many previously developed versions were later scrapped. This is likely due to Microsoft's own internal policies, as well as constant adjustments.
We are only talking about current versions of system released by Microsoft, which are distributed as follows: Home Edition, Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition, Education Edition, LCSC Edition and Workstation Edition.
According to distribution of features by size: Home Edition
1. Home version
For home computer version, this genuine system is pre-installed on many desktops or laptops purchased by individuals.
Compared to Win7, Win10 home edition is very convenient. Frequently used features such as virtual desktop, app store, Cortana Nana voice assistant, Xbox One streaming media games, Microsoft Windows Hello, iris, fingerprint login, etc. are available Yes, without excessive removal of these most basic common functions.
2. Professional version
The professional version is intended for computer enthusiasts or technical staff. In addition to all features of home version, it mainly provides security and office functions, such as allowing users to manage devices and applications, support for remote and mobile productivity scenarios. , Protecting sensitive corporate data, cloud-based technical support, etc., as well as some advanced technologies such as group policy, remote access service, Bitlocker drive encryption, domain name connection, etc.
3. Enterprise Edition
It is naturally aimed at enterprise level, so features should be as complete as possible.
In addition to all features of professional version, there are many more features that may not be understood by ordinary users: a group policy-controlled start screen, direct access to connect without a VPN, and much more.
4. Educational version
As name suggests, this is an educational version. The functions of educational version are almost same as those of corporate version.
If you want to talk about difference, there's only one, and that's long-term branch service feature. What does this feature mean?
This is an update. The most impressive thing about Win10 is frequent updates, and long-term maintenance feature in enterprise version is used to ensure that system can only update security patches and not functional patches.
Security patches are updates similar to win7 system that are intended only to fix loopholes in system.
Functional patches like win10 have a small update and should be actively installed for you. If you do not install them, they will not work and you will have to restart installation. If you are enthusiastic, do not want to.
5. Workstation version
The Win10 workstation version is very powerful. In case of a large number of functions, performance does not decrease, but increases!
It can be said that workstation version is highest version of win10, and hardware configuration it supports is shocking. For example, professional version of win10 only supports 2 CPUs and maximum 2T of memory, but workstation version can support 4 CPUs and 6T of memory.
One of most important features of workstation version is "great performance mode", which is not available in other versions.
What does Enhanced Performance Mode do?
This allows system to achieve dynamic performance optimization by automatically detecting CPU and GPU usage and continuously adjusting it automatically so that computer system can achieve and maintain peak performance.
In addition, it also supports RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access), which can directly access remote host's memory via InfiniBand.
In addition, there is another difference between workstation version and other versions, which is that installed system is very clean, without any things that you do not like.
Activation of each version of win10 system, caterpillar has already written before, you can read:

The system is divided into 32-bit and 64-bit, some may ask why such a difference? Which one should I wear?
The reason there are 32-bit and 64-bit systems is because there are 32-bit and 64-bit CPUs.
To put it simply, only 32-bit systems can be installed on 32-bit CPUs, and both can be installed on 64-bit CPUs.
There is no difference in functionality between 32-bit and 64-bit systems. The difference lies in support of hardware such as memory. The 32-bit system supports a maximum of 4 GB of memory, and 64-bit system supports up to 192 GB of memory.
So, if your computer's processor is 32-bit, memory above 4G will not be fully utilized. If your processor is 64-bit, then you install a 32-bit system, it looks like hardware will not be fully utilized.
Caterpillar is currently writing next series, interested friends can take a look, I hope you can shake your hand, ha!
