If so, which version of Vista do i get, and which Bit Version.
I was thinking Ultimate, but after reading a couple posts saying Ultimate is not worth the money, i don't know, im starting to rethink

Home Premium is second to Ultimate, and has everything you need. Home Basic is a bit too basic and Business is lacking a few features I would like but it's nothing big, and HP is cheaper.

If you have 3GB of RAM or less than get the x86 32-bit version. If you have more than 3GB or plan on upgrading to more than 3 then get the x64 64-bit version.

Vista Home Premium on my laptop, XP Professional on my desktop, and Win2K Server on both of my servers. But with my Microsoft Partner subscription, will be receiving my software kit and upgrading to Vista Business on my laptop, Vista Ultimate on my desktop, and Windows Server 2008 on my primary server. Still debating what to do with the secondary server, as I get SBS 2008, EBS 2008, or maybe just use it as a second computer with Vista Business. HMMMMM.
