5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it does!

Pros: Upgraded so that I could use 32GB of RAM. Did the trick. Was very easy and didn't wipe any data. After a week it said that it was not registered. I just clicked a button and now it is official. Not sure why it didnt take it the first time i entered the codez.

Cons: Not sure why you have to pay $100 extra for ultimate. Many of the features I feel should be built in to every version.

Other Thoughts: Bill Gates is the Devil.

4 out of 5 eggsNotes on Win 7 Ult.

Pros: Microsoft limits 20% of ISP download speed in Home Premium for some reason unknown to us meer motals. It is possible in Pro or Ult. to get around this very easy. Start task manager, new task and type in GPEDIT.MSC. Navigate to Administrative Templates, Network, and highlight Qos Packet Scheduler. Right click Limit reservable Bandwith and click on Edit. Click Enable and step the Bandwith Limit to "0". Apply and reboot. I saw the improvement almost as soon as I did this.

Cons: Upgrade was easy ( Sorry newegg, I had purchased my upgrade at another retailer.) Only took 6 min., It took longer to read instructions. Works perfect. Accepts Windows up grades, validates for software downloads from Microsoft, and does everything it should, except for one bug. Every so often I get a nag screen telling me Windows will not activate. Tried reboots, Retyping in Key Code, etc. but Tells me that I need to buy a new Key. Guess I can live with this bug as long as everything else works.

Other Thoughts: I've installed three more keys to upgrade three more laptops. They haven't displayed the nag. I had another Tech. tell me the nag is because I had used Win 7 HP OEM on the computer with the bug but my laptops all came with Win7 HP form the factory.

4 out of 5 eggsFailed to mention all features

Pros: Nice semi cheep way if you don't like the security on pro and run XP apps and much much more.

Cons: The one feature it didn't not say (which is hard to find on MS web site and had to wiki it) it can use 2 CPU sockets on a single motherboard that supports it and pro does not. It's only for extreme benchmark programs or to run it as a public/private server. The motherboard and CPU's can be pricy but you will not have to upgrade the PC in years to come.

Other Thoughts: It would be kinda cool running two CPU's that have 6-8 cores making up to 12-16 cores in one PC with server quality DDR3 RAM going up to 36 gig+ and can support up to 192 gig's with quad SLI or 4 way crossfire but I don't think most benchmarks and games can support that many cores and cards though

5 out of 5 eggsIs this really Microsoft ?

Pros: The Anytime upgrade went so smoothly I had to check twice to see if I really had Ultimate.

Cons: What's not to like ?

Other Thoughts: Since they got this right, maybe they can find the time to work on the 80 digit product codes that go on stickers that invariably get stuck in hard to get to places and require a magnifying glass and flashlight to read. Just saying...

4 out of 5 eggsNot impressive

Pros: Allows me to run a few XP apps - main reason for buying the update. Running the Virtual feature is kind of slow, so I use it only in rare instances, when absolutely needed

Cons: Slow in using Vitual PC

Other Thoughts: MS should have provided the XP-use feature with all Windows 7. but apparently recognized a huge income source from demanding upgrades to Win7 Ultimate? Same old MS---

2 out of 5 eggsLinux -> Win7

Pros: Video Game Support.
This is the only reason why I'm giving Windows another shot after having left Microsoft 6 years ago.
Yes, I can play SC2 via wine but I'm getting twice the frames under windows7 and that's without sacrificing shadows.

Cons: Incomplete listing of feature support between the various versions.
After installing and updating Windows, my first order of business was to connect to my home network. It sure would have been nice to know that you need Enterprise or Ultimate for NFS support. I suppose I really shouldn't be surprised that Microsoft provides an incomplete feature list on their website. I really can't wait to find out what other things this operating can't do.

How about basic support for some standard file systems? I sure would like to read from my local EXT2 and EXT3 partitions. How is it that after 18years, Windows does not have native support for a file system that doesn't require a royalty payment?

Other Thoughts: Would a single bullet point of "Support for Unix based networks" be too much to ask? That single bullet point would've really helped in deciding what version was right for me. Instead they tout "BitLocker" and multi language support as the major reasons to spend the extra 100$ going from Pro to Ultimate. Yeah, hard drive encryption and being able to change my desktop to swahili are not reasons for me to spend an extra 100$ on a wintendo. OTOH... being able to connect to an existing *nix based network, yeah that would make it easier for me to hand over an extra buck.

4 out of 5 eggsAccuracy in comments

Pros: Some of the commenters need to do more research before ranting. You do not need an encryption chip for Bitlocker to work. For accurate information refer to: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732774.aspx

Cons: None so far. Some hassles in compatibility and some driver changes for motherboard caused issues with updating that required a rollback to Vista temporarily. MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP YOUR PREVIOUS SYSTEM FIRST before any upgrade.
