version differences

version differences


i'm wondering if there is a chart that lists all of the features and which version has them. i've seen the pages on microsoft's site for each version, but i can't get a feel for what some versions don't have other than the aero interface. any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you.

RE: version differences

hi techcarnivore,

thank you for the link. i found a great list starting on this page, based on the link you gave me.

is there a 64 bit version of vista? the link you gave me mentions it. i must be asleep at the wheel. i'm headed back to microsoft's site to look into this.

it sounds like i need vista ultimate. i get the feeling that this is the high end "home" version". is that true? i gues i want the equivalent of windows xp pro, which i think the ultimate version is. just tell me that the ultimate version, won't have the "ultimate price" LOL

thank you so much. your link really made my day.

RE: version differences

The 64bit version is availible for download or order via microsoft although there aint many programs support it. there is a 64bit xp trial availible if you register you get 180 days seems much more stable the vista 64 and most programs will work on it

RE: version differences

I should hope XP 64 is more reliable that Vista it's been available for over a year.
