  The different versions of Windows Vista  


FOR COMMERCIAL REASONS, Microsoft has issued five different versions of Vista (Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate) thus creating no end of confusion. In fact I spent a few days trying to install XP in the much talked-about Virtual PC of Vista in order to enable me to run both operating systems and switch between them when necessary (since my printer can only work under XP, not Vista). I didn't succeed in installing the virtual PC, of course, since this feature is only present in the other editions but not in the Basic edition of Vista. But the article that discussed this didn't mention the fact.
So when someone talks about some wonderful feature in Vista the first question you should ask is "Which edition?". To give you an idea: upgrading from Basic to Home Premium costs 101.15 euros and from Basic to Ultimate 253.47 euros (see screenshot below). So be prepared to pay for some extra features such as installing a Virtual PC or having an aero interface.


Go here to see what's new in Vista's Home edition, which is the one preinstalled on all new computers.
