Anyone have a clue?
There's a graphic of how the versions differ at the following, but it's a little on the small side:

Just pre-ordered Home Premium.I've had XP and Vista Professional, but
really don't see the added features are worth the added cost.

Home Premium for me. It's just that Pro doesn't have much more than Home Premium. What for waste so much more money on nothing worth the price?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

Well Im ordering one Home and one Pro, since my one laptop need to connect to a domain for work and the home for my wife's machine.
As for the ultimate version adding bit-locker I've never used it cause if you really want my data your going to find a way to get it.

Windows 7 Ulti. x64
 
 

Just pre ordered Home Premium cost $54 including tax. Both x64 and x86 included in the package is what it said. I have one 64 bit and two 32 bit machines. Lets see load it three times. Thats 54 divided by 3 = 18. I can live with that if it works for me.

I want the 64-bit version but don't see it listed on Amazon. Does the box contain both versions? Where can I pre-order x64?

x32 and x64 are in the DVD. No separate purchase necessary.

Oh, and I bought Home Premium.

Are we allowed to load it three times?

While I'd like Ultimate, it would mostly be a vanity thing. And were I buying Professional at retail, the small additional charge for Ultimate would be a no-brainer. However, with Professional at half price against Ultimate at full price, that, too, is a no brainer.

Currently, I remote into several family members' PCs using Remote Desktop (they all have XP Pro). It appears that Home Premium does not have that ability.

Ergo, I'll be buying 3 copies of Professional instead of 2 Home Premiums and 1 Professional. At least it's only $300 instead of $600 . . . .

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
