Designed for enterprise deployments and volume licensing, Windows 8 Enterprise is the more serious member of the Windows 8 family. There's no support for Media Center, but you do get quick and easy access to corporate network resources from anywhere with an internet connection.
Windows 8 Enterprise is part of the Software Assurance programme, so you'll need to connect to a Windows Activation server. The Activation tools built into the desktop control panel will show you if and when a PC is activated, and what product key is currently in use.
The whole of the Windows 8 Start Screen is one enormous search tool. All you need to do is start typing, before choosing to focus on apps, settings or files — or the search interfaces built into many WinRT apps.
