Windows 7: Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)
 
 

Yep. I'm getting Ultimate through Technet but I'll be continuing to use Truecrypt as I have for several years. Amazing app and even more amazing that it's free.

You'd be paying an awful lot just to get the BitLocker feature in Ultimate if Home Premium is fine otherwise.

You might want to consider if there are things in Professional you might have use for (Group Policy Editor, XP Mode add-on, etc.). Otherwise it's likely better to save your funds and find an alternative to BitLocker, even if you have to pay for it.

Thanks foir the suggestions. I went to the TrueCrypt website and they don't currently have support for Windows 7! I guess this means I will have to go for Ultimate?

Almost anything that works on Vista works on 7. If a piece of software doesn't say if it supports 7 or not, you should assume that it does. Yes, TC should work on 7. The TC website just hasn't been updated yet. :P

I'm undecided if buying HP or Ultimate. What if i buy HP and one day i'll need Ultimate stuff? I mean, are the Ultimate features really needed anytime or it's a waste of money? Also how much CPUs does HP support? Wiki says 1, other comparisons 2.

Are the Enterprise features the only difference between HP and Ultimate so the base is = on both OS?

Hello John, see this tutorial to get the difference between different editions of Windows 7: Compare Windows 7 Editions
Also, i'd recommend you to go with Ultimate as it contains all the features. Its a bit costly but again its a 2 time investment and you wont regret.

The one thing with going for ultimate at this stage is that it is quite easy once installed to add remove components you do not use.
The Add and remove windows features option covers most of what you could call bloat.

Personally I went for the Pro as I didn't need multiple language support and bitlocker.

When running Vista HP I did miss the extra control that things like Group policy editor gives you

It doesn't matter which version you install it will take up the same amount of space because everything, and I do mean everything from the DVD (install.wim) is stored on the HDD. In other words the exclusive items for Ultimate are on the HDD when installing Home Premium. There only difference is those items are not activated.

This is why you can do the upgrade anytime without popping in the DVD.

Truecrypt works fine on windows 7, but you must install windows 7 without the recovery partition.
