    How is one going to choose which version they need most people can't decide
    what to eat for dinner, let alone trying to decide which of the 5 flavors of
    Vista will satisfy your needs, come on Microsoft 2 flavors is all you need
    and all the plubic needs.

    I don't agree, there aren't only 2 "flavors" of XP. Some people need more
    than others, since when is choice a bad thing?

  3. There are more than two flavors of XP: Home, Pro, Media Center, Pro x64,
    Tablet. (Not to mention Starter and N).

    Vista Home = XP Home
    Vista Home Premium = XP Media Center Edition
    Vista Business = XP Pro

    Vista Enterprise is a version of Business available to Software Assurance
    customers only (with appropriate free software perks)

    Vista Ultimate is new and is the result of the way the Windows WIM file
    works.

    Tablet features are now incorporated in the various Vista sku's.

    How many flavors (zillion) of Linux is there ? And it has less than 1% of
    the desktop market.

    Sample - there have been numerous "Flavors" starting with Win 95 (Four
    versions). Vista Enterprise will only be available to business volume
    licensees. Home Basic and Premium will replace Windows Media Center and will
    be "entertainment" oriented".
