  Vista Retailing: All versions On 1 DVD: Color Coded
Time: 00:38 EST/05:38 GMT | News Source: *Linked Within Post* | Posted By: Kenneth van Surksum

As you may have heard there are going to be a “few” versions of Microsoft Vista when it is finally released. Redmond this week start to lift some of the details for retailers. Some interesting ones to note are that all versions of Vista will be on the same DVD. This will enable upgrading by customers (and I imagine reduce costs). All customers will do is buy the version they want then and then if needed buy an additional upgrade license as they will already have the DVD.

Due to the confusion already showing of what version is what, all versions of Vista will be color coded.

Light Green-Home Basic
Dark Green-Home Premium
Blue-Vista Business
Platinum-Ultimate Version

Europe will get 2 extra versions Home N and Business N offering no media player per the 2004 legal ruling against Microsoft.

The much awaited aero glass makes its debut in the Home Premium Version, Business offers faxing and other features but NOT Media Center. Microsoft is targeting the premium version to have 50% saturation.

Not sure if this was Microsoft's main motivation, but not having to give a retailer a cut of any subsequent vista-to-vista upgrades might have played into this. And easier for the customer too. Nice.

Mooresa56, the Anytime Upgrade link in Editions of Vista that support the upgrades will take you to a website where you choose a Microsoft Partner you would like to buy an additional license or product key from for a better version of Vista.

Microsoft might make OEM's be the only way to upgrade your preloaded copy of Home Basic, Premium or Business on new PC's.
