The folks at Redmond can’t help themselves. When Windows 10 was announced, it seemed Microsoft was going to finally simplify the number of different Windows SKUs. But, over the last couple of years we’ve landed so many I’m struggling to find a definitive, current list. Late last week, another was added to the mix; Windows 10 Pro for Workstations.
Microsoft says Windows 10 Pro for Workstations will support server grade PC hardware with features such as ReFS, persistent memory, and the ability to use up to four CPUs (up from the current two) and 6TB of memory (the current limit is two TB).
Granted, the number of people who need support for this type of configuration is limited but surely it would be easier for the customer base to simply maintain the Current Windows 10 Pro SKU and increase its capability. Why does it need a different SKU?
I’m a simple guy. I think there should be two versions of Windows – Windows 10 and Windows 10 Server.
What do you think?
