I would have been happy with the business (professional) but since I had the choice on my technet subscription I went with ultimate. Home premium missing what remote desktop which I consider a key feature and XP mode which I have yet to use but is something I didn't want to lose and of course gpedit.

Other than bit locker i cant understand from the Poll why everyone wants ultimate.
Because it is the top of the line, perhaps?
well, i guess thats why i have it....

Pardon the intrusion in what might seem a bit unrelated. I have just acquired Ultimate, and I wish to install it OVER my present version, which is HOME PREMIUM. What frightens me is that i might lose all the settings that I have worked so hard to get right, and lose the programs which I have installed and which are working. Does ANYONE here know if the Ultimate will install and allow me to keep my current settings and programs, or will I lose all and have to reinstall everything? Is there a way to safely secure what I have? Thanks to anyone for help in this matter.
