Windows 7 starter: This is just like the starter edition of Windows XP that is sold in emerging markets in Asia. A very bare bones version of Windows that can only run three programs at a time. Will be found on some Netbooks just to keep people from getting Linux on such machines and so that Microsoft doesn't have to keep selling licenses for Windows XP.
Windows 7 Home Basic: Just like Windows Vista Home Basic that came on entry level PC's but with Windows 7 the Home Basic will only be available in emerging markets. Likely to be sold at a bargain basement price as an alternative to running a pirated version.
Windows 7 Home Premium: The name and features that are found in Windows Vista Home Premium. The home premium name retained to help those with Vista Home Premium buy Windows 7 Home Premium.
Windows 7 Professional: All the features from Windows 7 Home Premium plus file encryption and online backup. Named to make those running Windows XP Professional think that this is the version of Windows 7 they need.
Windows 7 Enterprise: Everything in Windows 7 Professional with a few add ons only useful to those in corporate IT, will not be available to home users.
Windows 7 Ultimate: Has most everything that Windows 7 Enterprise has but also has some features useful to home users such as Media Centre.
Those are the different versions of Windows 7: made clear as mud.
