TechRadar: Windows 7 Home Premium review

There may be six versions of Windows 7, but unless you need the business features of Professional or Ultimate, Windows 7 Home Premium is the version you want.

But what do you get in Home Premium and is it the right mix of features?

Most of the reviews and the coverage of Windows 7 over the last year has been the Ultimate version because that's what the test releases were; the Home Premium version is different in some signifcant ways, at least one of which is surprising and annoying.

Thanks for posting this, Mary! johnpalmer has been using Win7 for a while and reporting that it's miles better than Vista, but we haven't had a chance for the kind of detailed discussion that would let me decide when/whether to change up from XP. Your review is *really* clear and useful (as always).

you're very welcome ;-) I've written many pieces on 7 and even in one this long I didn't get to cover everything in it!

Nice review: I don't use the Vista on my laptop enough to warrant upgrading, but I will point people to your article who ask me what I think about Windows 7.
