Windows Vista Starter ED
Windows Vista Home ED
Windows Vista Professional ED
Windows Vista Ultimate ED
Windows Vista SERVER ED <- This is the one I want

The Ultimate Edition sounds good to me. Do you happen to have the breakdown of each version and their differences?

The starter is like Basic...thus, starting users
The Home is most like Tweaked more for Home work and gaming. It should include the Media Center program
The Pro is mostly Home with the advanced networking
The ultimate is Pro with the Tablet PC functions
The server, well...Take the Ultimate, take down the Tablet PC and Media Center and add the look and features of Windows 2003....

So the Ultimate has the extra Tablet PC function, that's it? I'll probably take the Pro then if that's what separates between the Pro and the Ultimate edition (also, price wise). I'm not the tablet PC type person. If the Ultimate offered more features besides the Tablet feature than what the Pro has to offer, then I'll consider the Ultimate.

Ultimate is everything you have besides the server features. I'd recommend Pro or Ultimate foryou. But remember, if you use Ultimate on the desktop, forget the Tablec PC features. I tried it and they don't work. Also, the Ultimatewill demand more on your machine
