    if you buy the oem version of vista ultimate, sub £120 u get all versions, but basically, they are retarded versions of vista ultimate, with home basic being the lowest of the low, barely an operating system, vista business is probs the next down the chain of retardedness,going from less to more retarded (ive adopted retarded as this threads lucky word :p )

    xp pro is probs either business or ultimate, ive got ultimate and its pretty good, and with oem dont cost your first born. xp home is probs vista home premium, i think

    Vista is actually pretty sweet... But of course, haters will always refuse to believe anything.
