Here's a table comparing four different Windows 10 editions

Here's a table comparing four different Windows 10 editions

Moments earlier, Microsoft shared more details of its rollout plan for Windows 10, which will begin on July 29 for Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home, and August 1 for Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education. And for the first time, the company has shared a nice comparison table regarding the features in these four editions (there’s even a PDF you can download).

In a nutshell, all four editions have the same core Windows 10 features, like the Start menu, Cortana (depending on your region), Windows Hello (if your hardware supports it), snap assist, virtual desktops, Continuum, the Edge browser, and Windows Update.

As you’d expect, when we come to the “business experiences” section, the two consumer editions receive fewer ticks than the business/education-oriented editions. For example, Direct Access, Windows To Go Creator, AppLocker, BranchCache, Credential/Device Guard are all not on the Home and Pro editions. These two consumer editions are also lacking “granular UX control” in the areas of device/app management and deployment.
