    Windows 10 enterprise. What Advantages Does it have? and upgrade ques.

    I've received an email from Microsoft (i was part of the first group to test windows 10) saying i could download windows 10 enterprise for 90 days. (along with 8, 8.1, and another OS 'which had no time limit') i was wondering two things. 1.)When the 90 days expires can i downgrade to the regular 10 OS? 2.) what advantages does enterprise have over the regular edition of Windows 10. (my new laptop arrives monday, following the specs on this account, but i am wanting to upgrade my 7 due to the fact it is well powerful enough to run 10.)

    You will have to re-install your correct OS, there is no way to "downgrade".

    Windows 10 & 8.1 & 7

    Enterprise is heavily gear towards medium to large size companies. You can usually only buy enterprise through vendor/site licensing kind of deal, (not 100% sure on this). Home is meant for homes they have all of the advanced features most people would ever need. It is in no way a slower, or low end version of windows, it's just lack not meant to be managed from a central location, and thus does not need the extra features offer by Pro/Ent.

    Windows 10 PRO is for homes, business, schools, enthusiast. Windows professional gives you the ability to join domains, gpo, Bitlocker, remote desktop, defer updates for a limited time.

    Windows enterprise versions are usually meant to be manage using AD that is usually setup with a Windows Server OS. This allows a system administrator to control things like the start screen, applocker, and control the updates as well. You really only benefit out of this when you have a system admin. This is a large subject that you can learn more about specific details by searching online or asking Cortana

    I wouldn't bother downloading it!

    thank you, as stated above i was able to roll back to a previous version during testing, thank you for clarifying that i am no longer able to switch to the basic after the trial. are you good with 7? the upgrade troubleshooter claims i don't have win7sp1 installed, but i do. enough power to upgrade too. i can't find anything online.
