For most people, the answer is Home Premium, but it depends on what your needs are.

Home Premium. Ultimate isn't worth the money; its useless.

Vista Home Premium 32 bit, running on my DV6449US HP laptop solid for a year, no problems, and no regrets.
Vista Home Premium 32 bit, on my desktop as well, also no problems or regrets for the 3 months I've had it.

Vista FTW (and linux for everything else)

I'm not one to hoard over new operating systems whenever they come out, but there's a certain... feel that I was meant to use vista.. Way more streamlined than xp, and blargh I say for the whiners that say too much resources.. If you think it uses to many, you need a new system.. (btw most any computer will run it really, p4 and up I mean, you just need a gig of ram and a nvidia 6000 series or higher graphics card)

My 0.02
