I am trying to decide whether to get Vista Home premium or Ultimate. I like some of the features like the system restore in ultimate but I don't need other features that come with it. I also would like to know your ideas on what way I should go as type (OEM, reatail, upgrade). I have windows xp sp2 currently and when I build a new comp I will get vista 64 bit but should I go with a dual boot of xp and vista or should I buy the cheaper upgrade and re-use my old hard drive? If you do suggest the option of dual boot should I get the retail verson or the OEM version? The reatil version can legally be re-installed so...that means I would have to buy OEMs for every time I rebuild again. Which would be better in the long run, OEM or retail? Also is there an easy way to transfer all your programs from one operating system to another without having to reinstall all of them again? Could just transfering the program files from one hard drive to another work?
