Windows 8 SKUs supposedly leaked, now just three versions

Three SKUs of Windows 8 will arrive, Windows 8, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows 8 Professional

Thanks to some documentation on HP.com, there's now some well-placed rumors out on the Internet of the Windows 8 SKUs. ZDNet reported two documents on HP's website, pointing to the Windows 8 SKUs.

Both documents are said to be revision notes for the Alcor Micro Smart Card Reader Driver, where next to a section called "operating system(s)" the following is listed:

 

Microsoft Windows 8 32 Edition

Microsoft Windows 8 64 Edition

Microsoft Windows 8 Enterprise 32 Edition

Microsoft Windows 8 Enterprise 64 Edition

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 32 Edition

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64 Edition

 

They've updated their story, with HP having modified their two incriminating files and the Windows 8 SKU info now gone. Should we expect just three different SKUs for Windows 8? If it were my guess, I'd say yes. It would streamline their confusion between all the different versions, that's for sure.
