Both of those features are available in Windows 7 Professional.

I'm aware, my point was Home Premium is sufficient for most people and that I would use it as well if it had those features. Most of the other extras I could do without

I'm confused. You say if those 2 features were in Home Premium, you would have used home premium. But those features "are" in professional...so why would you not use that and save yourself money? You spent extra money on Ultimate....that gives you BitLocker and Language Packs.

I didn't think my choice of OS was cause for a debate. Why does anyone choose one OS over another? Preference. That's not something I need to justify.

However, if you must know, I use other features such as native VHD boot occasionally, although I could live without them. Just because I mentioned two features not in home premium that I often utilize doesn't mean that there aren't other things, note that I said "main features."

I didn't think my opinion on a casual forum post would be subject to such scrutiny

Sorry for the scrutiny, I was just trying to clear up any confusion. Based upon your original post above, it read to me like you thought you had to be on Ultimate to get those features...I was just commenting to make it clear for others that Professional included those features as well.
