Windows 7: Windows Anytime Upgrade. Risks?

I can see where Bitlocker, Branch Cache and Multi Language support would be useful in a business/corporate environment but not for a home user like me and probably not for most Win 7 users.

I suspect many people buy Ultimate because it, well, Ultimate and they want the top of the line. For me, other than VHD support (which I don't need as I have Sun VirtualBox installed) which I would like to play with, there is nothing in Ultimate that I need.

I'll save my $$$ for Win 8

Sounds like, for you, it is the right way to go.
