Newbie and confused as to which OP?
 
Hi All!! I have recently bought a lappy for myself..I want to install the operating system on it, but i am really confused as to which one to go for? I am thinking of installing Microsoft Windows Vista Home. what do you say guys? Shall i go for it? What are the actual criterias ont which we decide as to which OP to go for? I am getting it for 156 @ http://www.checkcost.co.uk/microsoft...lish/p/149516/ at a store called ecostsoftware, but amazon has the same for 200..Its a good difference. Dont you think so? why amazon having that high price?

Don't go with any HOME editions but at least use Business edition or if possible Ultimate.

Yes as XXxxImmortalxxXX has suggested, i too will suggest u not to buy Vista Home versions. I too had a pre-installedVista Home Premium on my laptop, but later i have to downgrade it to winxp, as vista was giving a hell lot of problems in term of performance.
The only good thing about vista till date is that your pc won't be affected with virus, as most of the virus can't harm VIsta. E.g in win xp u wil find a virus which itself creates a folder with extesnion .exe.
