What is the difference between the Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade and the Windows 7 Upgrade. If I have Vista ultimate and want to go to Windows 7 Ultimate which should I get?

Upgrade is for Vista and XP users who would like to move to Windows 7.

Anytime Upgrade is for users who already own Windows 7, and would like to upgrade to a higher model, such as from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate.

You need Upgrade, not Anytime Upgrade.
