Yeah I know that and so do you
I'm just wondering if the OP does. I was just concerned if it was worth all the time and effort of jwmghf changing to "Ultimate" if he wasn't really going to benefit that much from it

A good point.

If you really don't need added features of Ultimate, you gain nothing. My recommendation, and I believe other members agree with me, is not to upgrade if the only reason is to get Ultimate.
