    I have already used Vista Ultimate for over a month. After running it and seeing how it works and the problems it created I won't be switching to Vista anytime soon.

    I'm also not switch to Vista now, but only want to see your options...

    After some months, maybe I will change and try it for the first time...

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    None. I will definately never have it on my pc, except if I get a laptop and it comes preinstalled, then I would just remove it. I have a feeling I will stick with Windows XP for games (hopefully the new directx will support it or even better that more companies will support linux), then *nix for everything else (probably Arch Linux and FreeBSD (due to performance issues over OpenBSD)). If you forced me to choose, I would go for the business edition since it won't have as much junk on it while still having more features, or maybe the ultimate.

    Cheers,

    I just ordered a new machine so I could still get it with XP Pro. Vista needs time to jell.

    The normal home user should get nothing other than Home Premium. The equivalent to the current XP Pro + MCE. Heck, you can get Vista Home Premium for $110.

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    I think, that I might give a try to Vista Home Premium and Ultimate in 2010.
    So far I am not ready to buy new computer due to Vista (drivers, DirectX10).
    Until SP1 for Vista is ready, it will have too many bugs and XP works just fine.
    Also nLite for Vista is not quite ready and it will take time, till it will really work.

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    When I change to Vista at some point in time, it will probably be Home Premium, which is basically the same as XP Pro (vs. XP Home).

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    Having tried Vista Ultimate in Beta testing I'm afraid I won't be switching until they turn off the lights for XP.
    Then I'll consider whether to make a full switch to Linux or think about a Mac.
    Vista is just plain horrible and I refuse to pay even $110 for eye candy, bugs and restrictive practices.
    As I've written before all of its new functions can easily be replicated for XP using free or bought add ons e.g. Media Portal, Window Blinds, HIPS etc.
    God knows what MS have been doing with all the development of Vista but it runs like a slug on my high end machine and they've removed any of the functions I might have felt worthwhile like WinFS.
    I think VistaME will prove to be a big mistake for MS.

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    Probably Home Premium although I wonder what advantages Utimate has over the others or is it only for 64 bit?

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    I don't plan to use Windows Vista soon but when I upgrade , I am going to use Home Premium edition .

    Reason :
    1. It includes all I need + the new Aero style (not so important but...)
    2. Its price ;)

    I'm finishing my custom (smaller, compatible and faster) installation of Windows XP Pro with nLite... :D

    Like the others, I don't think that I will try Windows Vista until 2008 or later...

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    Unless I get assimilated Vista will not be installed here. I am playing with the Windows XP Pro that came with my new PC and it's not exactly making an favorable impression. Linux is king of the woods here.

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    Ditto; especially for production or corporate enviroments (not to mention other than intranet access) Vista is going to be a nightmare. Anyone not knowing is in for a big surprise .. my vote is none, no.

    Having read the link I'd overlooked in the OP's post (thanks WSFuser). I'd have to go with ultimate.

    Re: Windows Vista Product Editions

    Alphatura1,

    DirectX 10 will not work with/on Windows XP and there are no plans to ever enable it to do so. If anyone wants to play DirectX 10 games (natively, taking advantage of DirectX 10), they will have to run Vista.

    This is why I will be running Vista some time in the future (probably not until SP1 is released though).
