Windows 7 has many versions from Windows 7 starter to Windows 7 Ultimate. This is the edition of windows 7 starting from the low-end up to the high-end

Starter – Home Basic – Home Premium – Professional – Ultimate

1. Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic will not come with AAC, H.264 or MPEG-2 support. Microsoft seems to have the intention to provide upgrades for those systems to add the support.

2. 4 Gigabytes of ram are supported by all Windows 7 editions in 32-bit mode. The differences are in 64-bit mode. Home Basic and Starter support a maximum of 8 Gigabytes, Home Premium 16 Gigabytes and Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise up to 192 Gigabytes of ram.

3. Windows Media Player Remote Media Experience (RME) is not available in Windows 7 Home Basic or Starter. However, all versions can share media over a home network.

4. All Windows 7 SKUs support 20 simultaneous SMB connections. This works out to 10 users, apparently.

5. Only windows 7 Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise support the Virtual XP Mode.

The editions are kinda confusing to some people. Compared to OS X Leopard, it has only 1 version.
