Windows 7 Home Basic will only be made available to emerging markets, and not in mainstream markets like the United States. It's included here for completion sake only. This version lacks Aero Glass (but includes the Aero-like Windows Standard UI), all of the Aero desktop effects, premium games, and a few other goodies. Most of the world can simply ignore Windows 7 Home Basic, though the existence of this version explains why Windows 7 Home Premium isn't simply called Windows 7 Home.
These shots depict the final, shipping version of Windows 7 Home Basic.

The Windows Basic UI offers an Aero-like look and feel without the glass effects.
As with Windows 7 Starter, there is no Personalization control panel available via the desktop pop-up menu.
