I was searching around the internet and came across a couple of articles but none of them seems to provide the info I want. I recently purchased a new laptop(dell xps) and It came with windows 7 home premium x64. I have win7 ultimate's dvd with me. So should I install that on my laptop or should I continue with the pre-installed windows? In the past, I would have chosen the former without thinking but this time I'm considering the following:
- Dell gives a recovery disk. I can restore my lappy to the factory shipped os anytime but that will be win7 home.
- What is actually different b/w the two? I mean feature wise. My major is comp. sc. so I can't just say I won't be using the advanced features of ultimate. But I saw one of the features is remote-desktop and I wouldn't anyway use microsoft's remote desktop, I'd rather use teamviewer or something. So are all other features like this? I mean replacable by something external?
- Dell preinstalls various bloatwares so if I restore windows in future, I'd still have those so performing a clean Ultimate install makes sense.
I'm really confused with this tradeoff. Please help me come to a descision.
