QOTD: Which Version of Windows 7 Do You Use?

It's been a full week since Windows 7 officially hit the mass market. Those of you who pride yourselves in being early adopters of technology have probably already got your Windows 7 machine all tricked out and running better than things were before, be it on Vista or XP.

Microsoft believes that Windows 7 Home Premium will be the overwhelming edition for mainstream computer users, despite how much cooler-sounding Professional and Ultimate (especially Ultimate) are. Much of Home Premium's popularity will come from the fact that it'll be the most popular SKU bundled with new PCs – but you guys who build your own have a choice.

While Home Premium will do for most users, including hardcore gamers, the Professional and Ultimate editions do give you the option to run XP Mode if there is ever the need. There's also the option to backup over a network too.

What we'd like to know from your today is: which version of Windows 7 did you end up going with – and why?
