Microsoft looks to be adding another new Windows 10 edition to its line-up. Dell mentioned a Windows 10 Home Ultra edition in its specs for the next XPS 13 2-in-1 device it announced at Computex on May 28.
I asked Microsoft if there is a new version of Windows 10 Home coming out that is not necessarily named "Ultra." Is there a coming higher-end Windows 10 Home edition (which may go by a different name)? And if so, when will it be available? A spokesperson told me: "Regarding your additional questions, Microsoft has nothing further to share."
Last year, leaked documents indicated that Microsoft was planning to introduce a new Windows 10 variant called Windows 10 Home Advanced. Back in February last year, Microsoft was predicting the first high-end PCs running Home Advanced would begin rolling out in May 2018. But that never happened.
Last year, it seemed as though Windows 10 Home Advanced would be similar to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations -- meaning a variant that was designed to work on more powerful, higher-end hardware than the systems running the "base" Windows 10 Home (or, in Workstations' case, Windows 10 Pro) editions. Microsoft declined to comment last year on feature differences between Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Home Advanced (or on Windows 10 Home Advanced at all).
