Must all those windows versions be supported ?
and what do you mean by "Pre-install Version Switch"

A reminder : The unlocker is only for removing the timebomb, adding reg keys while setup and auto set the bios date of windows alpha's / betas / RC's ( i call it testware)

Basically, one can change the Windows SKU (Professional to Home) before installing Windows.

It was just a suggestion you know, you don't have to implement it.

Ahh.. you mean that you can convert home to pro or Terminal server to enterprise. I thought that the retail stuff must be supported aswell. But if i implement this feature, i think microsoft would open the large dark room filled with law enforcements and walk (in sync) to me. (overdramatic ofcource, but they wont be happy)

To get back to the question. What longhorn and whistler builds must be supported ?
