Yes we in Europe will get our own edition of Vista: the N-edition. this will be the version that nobody will use, pay the same price and get less: no Media Player.
I have got the idea that Neelie Kroes does not know what she is asking from both the consumer as from Microsoft. as a consumer: two products, same price, only no media player, so I have to go and get some media player from the web (as if I cannot do this right now) .
And from Microsoft: Invest in yet another version as if six versions is not enough.
For more information about which feature is in which version of Vista, I saw this great document: click here to download (mind you, it is only readable in the new document formats: xps or docx.
