    this thread got a lot of spam since my last post.

    the BUSINESS features added to ultimate include data encryption, total OS/HDD backup features... and well not much

    the useless additions added to it for 'home' users are animated desktops and texas hold em poker.

    ultimate has nothing for a home user - if you and your 'associates' want those features... buy business or ultimate. i cant help it if you're such a whiner that you want the features of the top model at the price of the lowest, go into a car dealership with that attitude and see what you get.

    HAL7000... you're just offering irrational things without ANY useful info. you dispute everything i'm saying because its a opinion, yet all you offer is opinion with just as little backing yourself.

    seriously, and i mean this in a way that wont offend the mods or you: If you SERIOUSLY cannot wrap your mind around 3 kinds of OS for home users (basic, premium, ultimate) and two business editions (business and server)... i'm surprised you figured out how to post here. XP home, pro, and server 2003? dear god theres three already for XP, its not that much different.

    actully

    Windows XP Starter
    Windows XP Home
    Windows XP Professioanl
    Windows XP 64bit
    Windows XP Professional x64
    Windows XP For Embedded
    Windows XP MCE

    those are your windows XP versions all distinct

    Windows Vista Starter
    Windows Vista Home Basic
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    Windows Vista Bussiness
    Windows Vista Enterprise
    Windows Vista Ultimate

    if you count thats less versions of vista than XP, you could argue that xp pro x64 is really Server 2003 but its labled XP, and is diffrent from XP 32bit in many ways that make them dissimilar, and 64bit edition is for Itanium chips. While the 64bit versions of Vista share everything with there 32bit counterpart besides memory address space

    thank you for going to the effort to locate all the versions.

    the reason i find vista x86 and x64 next to no different in this aspect, is because the CD keys are compatible. you can buy x86, and get a DVD from anywhere and upgrade for nothing (or pay shipping and MS will ship one to you). this was not the case in XP, which made it a lot harder and more difficult to choose the OS you wanted.

    Mussels what makes you right and others wrong? You were negative with eastcoasthandle for presenting the other side of the coin, and me, you sir need a lesson in etiquette. I listen to your opinions ....such as this one excerpt from your first post in this thread;

    Quote by Mussels...”90% of vista bashers are repeating crap they read online and have usually never even seen the problems themselves - or never bothered fixing it. they'll spend hours modding drivers or doing registry tweaks to make XP run better, but are too lazy to even check vistas help on how to disable UAC”

    Mussels where did you get that 90%? Or is that a opinion like others share here….

    It seems you believe everything you read or watch my friend. I go to forums as such to discuss ideas, opinions and learn. You defiant reaction to condemn others by trying to turn the tables doesn't work with me. It isn’t that people hate Vista nor like XP but get frustrated in the way corporate America does business at times. I was reminded of this by farlex85 and DrPepper . But I am not making anyone out to be a hater for different opinions. MS doesn’t need you to defend them. And please try to understand others by giving them a platform to voice there thoughts and opinions without putting words in their mouths. I appreciate your input but relax. I get enough stress and bullshit from the real world, let it not invade the forum where a bunch of computer geeks share ideas and opinions. It is good to disagree and remain objective.:toast:
     
    DrPepper and farlex85 say thanks.
