Hi

 

All of the edition names, such as Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate have been deprecated.

 

There are basically only 2 editions that can be purchased at retail, in most countries, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro.

 

All of the other versions have restrictions.

 

Windows RT: Only available pre-installed on ARM-based devices such as tablet PCs.

 

Windows Enterprise: Only available to business customers through a Software Assurance, volume licensing subscription.

 

Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro with the 'N' designation: Only available in the European market (Does not include Media Player).

 

Windows 8 Single Language edition: Only available in selected regions (Does not include multiple languages).

 

Windows 8 China: Only available in China (Cannot be sold or activated outside of China)
