Are you willing to take the plunge and buy Microsoft's new operating system, Windows Vista, but don't know which edition to buy? There is a quick guide over at ViperLair which provides plenty of good information on the subject.



With Windows Vista out there already, some folks will be running Microsoft's latest edition to the Windows family, however the majority of you will be waiting for the end of January 2007 release date. Over the past few months and even years, there has been a lot of information and changes to the OS and it has become quite a confusing mess in regards to the different versions and licenses. Should I get Home Basic? What's so special about Vista Ultimate? Only 2 reactivations before I need to buy a new copy? Should I go 64bit?


As much information as there is about Vista, there is also as much misinformation currently floating around, so let's see if we can sort through it all and help you make an informed decision on what to get. Should you get Vista if you already have XP? That's a bit out of the scope of this article and worthy of an Editorial all of its own. This article is a quick and dirty look at the different versions of Vista and will assume you have decided you have an interest in purchasing Vista.
