Windows 7 Ultimate OEM. I like using genuine software. I'd rather use a giveaway version or even a free version instead of illegal software if I have no enough money to buy it. At least I express my respect for the developers:)

I used to be a programmer so that's nice to hear. But why OEM? AFAIK, it will be tied to whatever machine you install it on, and if your machine dies, you lose your W7 license with it.

I think you'd really be better off with the RTM version.

I remember paying over $300 (with tax) for Vista Ultimate. Sigh. Somehow I can't help feeling MS owes me money back on that deal. Anyway, I have a developer's license for both Win 7 pro & ultimate. Can't remember what ultimate gives you that pro does not, that the average user would need. But hey, it's your wish! :)
