The Home, Pro, Enterprise and Education editions all will get the same set of core features, including customizable Start Menus; InstantGo and Hiberboot support for fast startup; TPM support; integrated Cortana assistant technology; Windows Hello security technologies; Continuum switching from PCs to tablets; and the new Microsoft Edge browser.
