I'm looking at upping to vista my rig listed in sig.

I want to know which vista 64 I should pick, between Business or Ultimate.

Thanks for helpfulness :D

Ultimate and Home Premium will have Media Center, business does not. Ultimate has Dreamscene (animated wallpaper) no other versions do (unless you * cough ** hack ** cough them). There are a few other things. Ultimate will image your entire OS drive for backup, not sure if business will do that. Bit locker drive encryption on Ultimate, other vers I think not, but there are so many vers of Vista I get confused. Ultimate has nothing really great you can't live without, but it's nice to have if $$ isn't a big issue.

If you get Business you won't see any games installed by default - not even freaking Solitaire - but they are still there, you add them back in in the Programs section of control panel.

Awesome. Sounds like I'll be going with 64-bit Home Premium. I don't like the idea of an animated back ground. Also seems like I'll be just fine with Home vs Ultimate or Business.

Thanks for the advice :D
