Default Vista Business - Or Wait?

It looks like Vista Business will be available for me sometime in December through work. I'll probably buy a copy to test out some of our software for compatibility on my test system, but I wonder if it's worth licensing for my home system as well, or if I should wait for the more 'home oriented' versions. Anyone who knows a bit about Vista have any ideas what I'd be losing out on?

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Thanks, that was very helpful... it looks like the only things I'd be missing are some of the digital media featuers and parental control. Since I'm getting a Macbook Pro in the next couple of weeks, I hardly think missing out on Windows Movie Maker will be very much of a big deal, so looks like Business/Enterprise is good enough for me. Thanks!
