  • Windows 7 Home Basic is available in emerging markets, and is not available in developed countries including Europe, North America. Aero options are excluded along with several new features in Home Basic and the software includes geographical restrictions that requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.

    Aside from these limitations, it functions normally and can be upgraded.

  • Home Basic supports the "anytime upgrade" to Home Premium, Pro, or Ultimate.
