Care to elaborate with sources? This is the first I've heard of this.

I think he meant for using it for user accounts over an intranet network. Not actual network speed. Although i could be wrong and he did infact mean that lol.

The only main difference between all the windows variations (same API ofc) are the services provided for the needs of the user. EG: 7 pro would have services on it for hosting and intranet networking that home edit. wouldn't generally have. *cough* marketing.

Never ever buy Ultimate, unless you can somehow get it for the same price or cheaper than the other editions due to student deals. Home Premium is good for most users but I personally recommend Professional.

IMO It would be better to spend those extra cash on somewhere else instead of getting the 7 Ultimate

Naw. There's also max usable RAM, and max number of physical CPUs.

Huh?

User side max RAM ranges from 2GB-192GB, and from 1-2 physical CPUs.
