This question has been asked time and time again in nearly EVERY thread. Noone really has an answer. Can someone please state why you are buying Vista Ultimate(as opposed to Home Premium)? According to the poll a VERY large majority of you are. I would just like to know why.

The only reasoning in buying Vista Ultimate from my point of view is DreamScene. Might sound like a small reason and yes i know it has been done before, but dreamscene is excellent and seems like the only point in buying Vista Ultimate. I'm sure everyone might have different reasons. What is your reason?

Because it says Ultimate in the name :p

For gamers, you don't need it. It does come with the "Game performance tweaker" but I don't think thats necessary for advanced users.

That was my second reason. I just forgot to state it. Windows "Ultimate" sounds a hell of alot better than "Home Premium". Cut it all you want, its still a "home" operating system. :p

(probably buying home premium and selling my ultimate copy. :o)

for me i preffer the better network options, and i need remote desktop, i could have gotten a business version, but then again i would like to have media center.


comparing vista to xp it goes like this

vista home basic = slightly worse then xp home
vista home premium = xp home + media center
vista business = xp pro
vista ultimate = xp pro + media center + more extras
vista enterprise = xp pro corp + more

QFT!

Yeah, I'm starting to lean towards Home Premium as well...but we'll see I guess. Those $50 coupons for home premuim that come with ultimate are pretty tempting...Actually, it would probably be cheaper to get Ultimate + $50 home premium rather than 2x Home Premium at regular price....

Because ultimate doesn't cost me anything. Thats the easiest answer I have. Now if I had to pay for vista...I'm not sure which version I would want.

I will buy Vista Ultimate because it has full functional remote desktop and fax. Home Premium has limited functional remote desktop and it do not have fax application to sent and receive fax.

maybe its just me, but I have always believed remote desktop was always a terrible way of connecting to people. Is vista any different?

'tis ok, I just put OpenWRT with webif2 on my Buffalo BHR-G54S wireless router so I could do advanced QoS and adjust the freaking lcp-echo settings because my DSL kept crapping out.

Nothing gets a gaggle of Microsoft users happier than restrictive DRM, functional deficiencies, and poor performance.

I think Vista is hot...

Well,mainly because my Uni is offereing all versions for about the same price.
The difference between Home Basic and Ultimate is for me,only about 30$

Simply because I must always have the best version of everything I own.

Well I used remote desktop few times, it was great way to connected to my friend desktop when he on broadband. But my other friend still used 56k modem, when she had problems and asked my help, I connected to her desktop and yes it was really very terrible slow like 15 secs to move the cursor and click etc. So remote desktop is best suit for high speed broadband, I didnt find any different with Vista remote desktop when connected to my mate and gave control to him had very interesting look around test Vista. :)

Hah linux boy, would you know I was involved in the early testing and development of openwrt? :D

I knew mbm from another linux related hacking project before he even started on openwrt.

I like what it offers. Besides, I do Microsoft feasibility studys all the time so I get to visit the store often.... I picked up Ultimate on my last one. Office pro is next.

If you are in a corporate setting (and using domains), Vista Business or Ultimate is the way to go. Since my laptop is my home machine/work machine, it has Ultimate (work-related needs plus Media Center).

Because I must have the best version available. Ultimate sounds cool too. :p
