Windows 7: Home Premium to Ultimate

This article shows the major differences between the Windows 7 editions:
Windows 7 editions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The professional and Ultimate editions have many advantages but they aren't particularly important to a home user.

The Ultimate and Enterprise editions are essentially identical. The only real difference is that the latter is not a retail product but available only to large organizations with bulk licensing.

They are all the exact same OS with a few extra expensive features to unlock - which have better 3rd party freeware alternatives like Team Viewer, virtualizing freeware, etc.

As strollin mentioned.. for a home user or system builder who likes to max out the ram on the system, the memory limitation would be the most important consideration.

My other win 7 and 8 machines are 64 bit so I decided not to have Ultimate on 64 bit so I can't take advantage of the extra ram, but for my purposes 3.5 gb works fine. I am hedging my bets in case some legacy software cannot run on 64 bit.

If it's 16-bit, no it can't.

The Wikipedia comparisons are very interesting, the 192 gb allowance for ultimate is generous but check out win 8 pro, you could use 512 gb. None of my pc's have more than 8 gb installed although two of my motherboards can accommodate 32 gb. I have found that adding extra ram seems to follow the law of diminishing returns most of the time.
