Go with what you have.
Ultimate was supposed to be progressive and come with future add ons, but it would seem that the future is still somewhere in the future.
Apparently they meant the next version of windows.
Im just glad I didnt pay extra for the privledge of getting ripped off.
sorry zoron is right
I have ultimate and it is great. I was being an ass
It does have features that are helpful and I use them.
For the average home user though and with the (theoretical) promise of the new windows coming soon Im not sure if the invesment is worth the cost.
It does offer better security, better control of users, and better network abilities in domain environments but if that is not needed I wouldnt worry.
One other concern that Im not sure about is the media functions. I dont use many of them and I dont know if Home premium provides them.
