    At the risk of piling on, I'll join the chorus of those who wish Windows 7 Ultimate was, well, more ultimate--offering truly important features that aren't in other versions of the new OS. While I don't think having an "Ultimate" that really isn’t will be the undoing of the House of Gates, I can tell you I won't be buying it.

    I did, however, based on previous experience, purchase a copy of Windows Ultimate, because it was the upgrade for Windows XP Pro and required for the network I was running at the time. A business network I was running at home, mind you.

    ...Which is why Microsoft have said that the Ultimate SKU will have limited availability, the vast majority of people will see no benefit in it over Home/Pro. Still, these website journalists love to have a bit of a rant (indeed, they'd prolly have bugger all to contribute otherwise).

    i really don't get why anyone would bother with anything above home premium for most of the enthusiasts or average joes.... the only real advantages vista ultimate provided was the hardcore users that exceeded the 16gb address limit of home premium which is a rareity in itself.
