Windows 7: Compare Windows 7 Editions

Windows Vista Ultimate
 
 

The three main U.S. editions are Premium, Professional and Ultimate. As you've already guessed, Professional is the business version. Windows 7 Ultimate lacks ultimate extras, but can be used in 35 languages and has BitLocker. I personally think when comparing, Vista Ultimate is better than 7 Ultimate.

In terms of features, yes you would be correct. However if you compared the performance of both, you'd be incorrect. :|

I have to agree Ultimate excels in performance.

In Brazil the difference price between Home Premium and Professional version is prohibitive for us. For me the WinXP Mode is very necessary but i will consider not upgrade in this time.

I'm really keen to find out the differences between Ultimate and Enterprise, the 'Direct Access' VPN feature seems good as does the Virtuliasation feature (running 4 x OS - license free). Is there anything in Ultimate that is missing in Enterprise

Sorry - just found the answer by looking at earlier posts. This is really helpful, thanks

Home Premium vs. Professional

Hi,

I am planning to upgrade from Vista Home Premium 32-bit to Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional 64-bit to enjoy my 4GB.

Does Professional edition offer everything Home Premium has to offer with some extra features like xp mode? Will this upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit be worth it?

Professional has everything Home Premium has, and the extra features.

If you have 3gb+ RAM then switching from 32-bit to 64-bit will be a good choice, allows more room for RAM upgrades, as well as utilizes the full potential of your 64-bit CPU.

I know this is off-topic but what is the advantage for having 64-bit system for my CPU instead of 32-bit system?

My CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 @ 2.50 GHz
