Re: Is there any reason to buy Ultimate over Home Premium?
Supposedly home premium will not run inside a VM, if you care (only pro and up). You can get pretty good VNC software for free, so remote desktop is not an issue at all. XP in a VM built into the OS is cool, but if you have a copy of XP to use, you can do the same thing with say, virtual box or (insert favorite free virtualization client software here). The 16 gig limit kind of annoys me, I doubt the next windows comes out quite as quickly as Vista->7 took, I can see myself going to 16 gigs in the next 2-3 years. Of course, supposedly you can upgrade your OS by just buying an upgraded license later.
