well to be honest i dont know yet,,, need to do a bit of reading first but microsoft say i should get this one and say,,, by running their scan from here,,, Based on your selections, Windows Vista Home Premium appears to be the edition that is right for you,,,, not that i trust microsoft to decide what i am going to use my computer for in the future,,,, they would have been better doing a test no your current os and users habits,,, not base it on about 5 ?????? ons ,,,,, i still havent worked out if xp home or xp pro is better,,, people will still be debating which vista is better in 10 years to come ( doj )

When I do I am sure I'll get Ultimate. I never like being limited on options and really thats the only way to get all the bells and whistles. I won't be standing out there in line to get it the day its released though either I am sure Its a long ways off for me to adopt it 100%.

What they need to do is release just one freakin CD, and "unlock" any abilities you find yourself needing in the future. So if you use your computer at work, you work for a small buisness that does not need a domain server, that buisness finds itself needing one in the future, you can upgrade right there instead of having to wait for "upgrade cds".

There is something in the works that is like this, but its more of a "pay as you go" kind of thing. Monthly billing, etc. Right now it is being proposed to ISPs and Hosting services (like the one I work for). So you pay monthly instead of up front cost.
I think it can work for some areas, but its a small market for that.

I also wish they would release these with "packages", like the Linux OS comes, or now the Longhorn Server Beta. The packages are not installed unless you need them or, can be installed in the future. This is obviously for security for the Server OS, but it can be translated down to the home user too.

Anyways, ill probly wait 2-3 years for the next OS MS will release. Vista is nothing more than eyecandy right now.
