Windows 7 RTM Ultimate - Activated (Technet)
 
 

Well, I am not going to go the upgrade route as I have my Technet Subscription....
Having said that...if I was going to use the upgrade I would go for Home Premium....I mean it has been nice to have Ultimate during the Beta and RC but the reality is that I just don't use the extra features.

Okay, I give up. I thought I had bookmarked a detailed list of the differences between the several flavors of Win.7; however, I can't seem to find it.

Anyone have a clue?

I'm probably going for 2 copies of Home Premium and 1 of Professional. I really don't need Ultimate.

Will Home and Pro have FAX capabilites? Is Ultamate both Home and Pro with Media Center?

Thanks for the help.

Home premium doesn't support Bit locker, so if I install the home premium, the partitions locked by bit locker can't be accessed?

As I understand it, all three include Media Center.

W7 Home Premium upgrade to Professional possible?
Hi, I mistakenly ordered a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and as a result - am unable to add it to the work network domain - I just screwed up. Is it possible to "upgrade the O/S" (pay to have it unlocked) and change it to "professional" or whatever is needed? Thanks in advance. John
