You've gotta be kidding.
eWeek asks which version of Windows Vista is right for you?
Is it Vista Starter, which can only access 256 MB of RAM and run a maximum of three applications at a time and doesn’t include the Aero Glass interface?
Probably not. You’re all about the bling. So, maybe it’s Vista Home Basic which isn’t crippled (other than it just being Windows – zing!). Oh, but it doesn’t include the Aero Glass interface either. And it doesn’t work well in domain or Active Directory networks.
Well, maybe it’s Windows Vista Home Premium. That has the Aero Glass interface. Although, uh, it has the network issues, too.
OK. OK. OK. What about Vista Business? That doesn’t have the network issues. It also doesn’t have Virtual PC or a multi-language user interface.
So you might want to consider Vista Enterprise.
Wait, wait, wait. Forget that. You know what should do? Instead of trying to figure this out, you should just buy Vista Ultimate. Have you got $400? And another $1,500? Because you’re going to need a new machine.
Well, sheesh, the Macalope is starting to wonder if you’re really serious about moving to Windows Vista.
