  • windows 7 home prem 64/ultimate 64

    is there any advantage editing wise in E5 to go with ultimate 7 64 over 7 home premium 64?

    If you are going to use a MoBo with more than one physical CPU Pro or Ultimate would be the way to go, single processor Mobos usually are memory limited so Home Premium is usually ok, here is a link comparing WIN7 versions

      Editing-wise, I'm not sure there's a large advantage, but I had Home Premium and upgraded to Professional.

      If you can, get at minimum Professional. Home Premium doesn't support incoming Remote Desktop connections, nor does it support XP Mode (XP mode also requires hardware virtualization support).

      The nice thing about Windows 7 is that's VERY easy to upgrade - you just buy the appropriate license key and do the Anytime Upgrade. Takes less than 20 minutes and you don't have to reinstall or anything. That's how I got from Home Premium to Professional.
