Windows 7 editions and their differences
  1. Starter (Initial)
    As the name suggests, this version is designed for budget systems and has a minimal set of functions.
    It can not be used for retail sales - it comes only with ready-made PCs. The latter means that if your computer does not have this version of Windows 7, then it is impossible to install this version, since it is not sold at retail.

  2. Home Basic (Home Basic)
    The version has a low cost and is designed for users who use only the basic functions of the platform.
    In this edition there are no all tools designed for business applications, and there are no additional opportunities for the user to work with multimedia.

  3. Home Premium (Home Premium)
    The basic version offered to home users. It has a number of differences from Home Basic (Home Basic) edition:
    Additional games. For fans of computer games, this will still be small, but still more than in Home Basic.
    The presence of the Media Center utility (for more, see the official website This allows you to turn your computer into a home entertainment center (cinema, TV, video recorder, control using a remote control, etc.).
    You can record DVD video discs using Windows DVD Studio. So that later the recorded disc could be viewed not only on a PC, but also on a regular home DVD-player.
    There are Scissors for taking screenshots (built in Windows 7 program for taking screenshots). With one click of a button, you can record an image from the PC monitor screen.
    Support touch input. Data entry is not from the keyboard, but by clicking on the menu items and the virtual keyboard keys directly on the screen, of course, with the appropriate monitor.
    The possibility of organizing a home group. Combining multiple PCs into one local home network.
    Tablet PC support. You can buy a tablet on which Home Premium will be installed.
    Windows Aero shell support.
    Like the version of Home Basic (Home Basic), this edition also lacks all the features designed for business applications.

  4. Professional (Professional)
    The basic version for distribution to companies. For example, laptops for personal use with this version of Windows 7 are also sold.
    Added a number of tools designed for use in business applications:
    printing function based on the current network location. The printer can not be connected directly to the computer and can be connected to the corporate network, and be available for many users simultaneously. This saves resources on the corporate printers, on paper, supplies, and allows the use of high-speed printing device. Also it allows you to control print, for example, for business security purposes, to print the document "not leaving" for other purposes.
    The ability to remotely control your PC. The computer remained on the workplace. It means that you can access it from any place where there is another computer and access to the Internet (for example, from any business center, Internet cafe, etc.). Of course, only to those who know the appropriate access passwords. Convenient for employees who often leave the office, as well as in case of emergency, when information “forgotten” on a computer is needed “badly”.
    Support file system encryption. For security purposes, so that even if files are stolen, nothing can be disassembled and read. For companies, this is especially important, since competition is increasing, data must be protected from leakage, otherwise it may overtake "on level ground".

  5. Enterprise (Corporate)
    Not sold in the retail network - distributed among large companies by corporate licenses. It has all the features of the Professional version (Professional) plus a number of additional features:
    Multilingual interface (up to 35 languages, between which switching is possible).
    BitLocker Drive Encryption to protect information, as well as BitLocker to go removable media encryption. If someone tries to "steal" this encrypted information, then he will be tortured to decipher it, and he is unlikely to succeed.
    AppLocker technologies (allows you to create rules that allow (or prohibit) certain users to run certain files and applications). In a large corporation, someone can do a lot, someone much less, depending on the position, status, tasks to be solved. This applies to running applications, accessing files and folders, etc.
    DirectAccess is a technology for remote access to corporate network resources. In the corporate network, you can find a lot of useful for work, being outside of corporations (at home, on business trips, etc.). For this and need remote access to the corporate network.
    BranchCache networking technology for caching: on a local network, a user can quickly download a file from the cache if this file has previously been downloaded by another user of this network from the Internet. This is convenient for sharing information (files) with colleagues from a corporation, especially for exchanging large files that cannot be sent via email.
    In remote sessions, you can use the convenient Aero interface.
    Ability to boot from a disk VHD (Virtual Hard Disk). The loaded operating system may not be stored on its own computer disk, but on a virtual disk, outside the computer.
    Subsystem to run with UNIX-applications.

  6. Ultimate (Maximum)
    The most complete edition of the operating system Windows 7 (has the capabilities of all other versions).
    Functionally practically does not differ from the Enterprise version (Corporate), but is used in retail.
    This option is suitable for those who intend to use all the features of this platform, and is not limited in cash, since the Ultimate (Maximum) version is the most expensive of all.
    The differences in the versions of Windows 7 can be clearly seen on the official Microsoft website:

Difficulties there but you say that there are a couple of console commands all, do not tell how to decompress from the console NSIS without him?
You missed what I said earlier - "Also, there's really no one bothers to download from the official source of the updates, extract msu, and then the cab (the team treated it ). "However, working with 7-zip from the same console, no one has been canceled.
BigFishCrazy @ 20.10.20, 19:02*
About how to unpack msu msi and do not need to talk, you can guess that the elementary just confused
Since msu files in the package there, and updates are presented in the form of already unpacked the contents of the cab files, it is not obvious what concerns the expression "start msi" in the phrase "Stupidly not copy, decompress, then start msi, everything." But as I said, can not be reduced to install the update to the elementary unpacking and copying, and the word "all" as something not so good describes its mechanism. In general, I wanted to say - have said so on the water in a mortar to pound will not.
