New editions of Windows 10 are spotted in recently released builds

The recently released builds 14328 and 14332 of Windows 10 Insider Preview come with a significant number of changes. Behind the scenes, these builds have got a number of new editions (or SKUs - stock keeping units) which will be available starting with Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

There is a thread at MDL forums where the user "abbodi1406" has shared the list of editions (SKUs) new to Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The list looks as follows:

  • ProfessionalCountrySpecific
  • ProfessionalSingleLanguage
  • ProfessionalEducation
  • ProfessionalEducationN
  • ProfessionalWorkstation
  • ProfessionalWorkstationN
  • EnterpriseSubscription
  • EnterpriseSubscriptionN

According to that user, he discovered these editions in Windows 10 build 14328, in the file EditionMatrix.xml. Also, he found out that the regular editions "Professional" and "Core" of the currently released Windows 10 versions can be upgraded to ProfessionalEducation only.

The edition "ProfessionalCountrySpecific" can be a special Windows 10 edition for China.

It is interesting because the Education edition already exists. In the current implementation, its feature set is similar to the Enterprise edition, so ProfessionalEducation can be a version with less features, e.g. based on Windows 10 Pro but with different licensing. There is no other information about these new editions yet.
