Ultimate for me probably, usually just the best fit for my business, and personal needs as far as windows usage.

Voted not buying W7 - b/c I bought TechNet sub instead....

But, technically speaking, all machines will have W7 ultimate only installed.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
 
 

I hate how microsoft always releases so many versions. There should only be three. The regular one (currently called ultimate). Most users probably want full control of their pc and all the features. Then there should be reduced (currently home basic). For people with less processing power. And then the super small one for mobiles.
