Ultimate or Enterprise?

I happen to have access to both at the moment, so I was wondering if there are *any* advantages whatsoever - no matter how slim those advantages might be - to one or the other.

Hi, there is no difference between these editions. Only difference is in licensing. Enterprise edition uses volume licensing. Here, you can find the details about Win7 features: Compare Windows 7 Editions

I believe the only difference in the OS itself is that in Enterprise premium games are disabled by default. In a corporate environment that would be an advantage.

The cost per unit with Enterprise would be lower. Just be sure your usage is legitimate.
