On 30th January 2007, Microsoft will release its new operating system called Windows Vista. This replaces Windows XP and is packed with improvements, according to Microsoft.
Windows Vista will come in 4 main flavours :-
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Some countries will also get 2 extra versions :-
Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise
Not all versions include Media Centre functionality. Windows Vista Home Basic does not, but Windows Vista Home Premium does include Media Centre. Windows Vista Business adds backup, networking and remote desktop but misses out on Media Centre whereas Windows Vista Ultimate has everything. The price increases accordingly.
If the budget permits the best version of Vista to purchase for your Home Theatre PC is Windows Vista Home Premium.
