Nope. The Windows Vista Business I'm currently running is the final retail release.

Yes, it's 49 F here in Saratoga, CA. It gets rather cold here during the evenings, but in the afternoons it's tolerable, depending whether the sun is out.

i don't think ultimate has any extra features from home-premium. just has a few extra junk nobody really needs.

Meh, I got it for free, so I don't need to worry for them. The extra Junk, I just don't use, that's all...especially Dreamscene. Beautiful, but CPU taking (23% on a single core with HT)

Basically it has the features that Home Premium and Business combined along with DreamScene (essentially allows you to use video clips as a wallpaper), Texas Hold'Em Poker (customized for Vista) and BitLocker Drive Encryption.

So none of these are junk, but just depends what you really need. If you like Texas Hold'Em Poker, that'll come in handy. If you like your data secure, BitLocker helps.

Power Together. It was this thing from Microsoft where you could get a free copy of Windows Vista Business or Office 2007 Professional if you signed up and listened to three Webcasts. Ownage just got his copy of Office 2007 Professional. Worth $400.

I just got my copy of Vista Business about last week. Mmm...so awesome. Oh and supposedly Microsoft is releasing the Vista Service Pack 1 (codenamed "Fiji") later this year. Good stuff.
