    Hi

    I am not sure what version I should buy windows 7 home premium or windows 7 pro edtion.

    I am running xp pro right now but I am not sure if windows 7 pro edtion is worth the extra money from the charts I seen its mostly like encryption they add and remote desktop and stuff like that what I prob would not use anyways.

    What I run most of the time and I am most concerned about is will premium come with the option to install IIS?

    Then should I get 64bit or 32bit?

    I am kinda scared my stuff won't work or my programs I use won't work.

    How about IIS?

    Too bad MS does not give you both versions it would make a the choice eaiser.

    Ya thats the best I could find it should be the same. I don't care if it is not by default. I had to install it manually for windows XP its not a big deal as long as it can use it.

    Also I am looking into this sweet upgrade deal and I went to staples.ca and went to order. Yet they don't give me a choice for 64bit or 32bit.

    Does that mean they are giving both away?

    I would go for home premium. Unless you want xp-mode and other junk and keep in mind most pcs can't use xp-mode then go for home premium. Its way cheaper and will do great.

    Ya the more I read I think home premium is the way to go but now I can figure out if they will give you both 32bit and 64bit since I can't find the option too choose which one I want.

    The stores that sell them just show Home premium English edition and French edition no 32 or 64 bit choice.

    Well I found out according to the window 7 site it will come with both 32-bit and 64-bit! :D

    "This product includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions."

    Buy, download Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade from Microsoft Store

    From what I heard Windows 7 is good(I hope) I have not tried it yet but still going to pre order it since it is so dam cheap so I guess I am taking a bit of a risk but I can't hold onto XP forever.

    I was hoping to try it out through my school since I will get a free copy from them but since it is academic licensed if I do any sort of commercial stuff I have to buy a real license so I don't want to lose this chance at a cheap legit copy.
