    Which version will you end up with?

    I'm sure at home the staff will be using a home variety or Ultimate, so when they come so school and we run it (in a few years) then they'll want the same things, does that mean the Business version will not do and we'll have to pay Ultimate price? hmmm

    I expect most consumer PC's will come with Home Premium. If you look at the MS Site you'll see you'd only be missing out on media centre.

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvist...s/default.mspx

    Also bear in mind that in Europe only the 'N' versions will be avalible.

    You've forgotten to add an 'Enterprise' option to the poll btw.

    That puts media centre at a higher price than it is now @ £63+vat

    Dammit, I didn't see that little link to Enterprise, hidden away like that!

    Do we qualify for that version in school? The Standard Image thing may mean no more Ghost that we use currently. (I do not want to start a debate on Ghost vs RIS)

    I took a look at that table, does that mean that Home doesn't have Remote Desktop?

    Home Premium at home, Enterprise or Business at work depending on what Ramesys sell

    Re: Which version will you end up with?

    I see that two people voted "Business N" - why would you chose the option without WMP? Good product and free. Don't see the point of excluding it. Please enlighten me

    WiMP is a pile of crap. Awful skinned interface, doesn't play as many formats as Winamp/foobar2000, supports Digital Restrictions Management, not cross-platform, sluggish...

    ..and where did you get the idea WMP was free, my understanding is it requires a Windows license.

    hmmm, didn't think that you could get Vista Business N without a license. Nice to see Microsoft going down the Linux route.

    After speaking with my SLA supplier we will be getting the Enterprise version FOC. Not sure when I will install it though.

    I like the WMP11 skin, especially in Vista, I only need WMA, FLAC, OGG, MP3 support, I just don't turn on DRM, I only use Windows, I find it faster and a lot better to use than Winamp when there's 40Gb of music.

    I've used Winamp for as long as I can remember, I've just started using WMP instead since 11 came out.

    Would still give my right arm for Milkdrop though.
