I'm about to buy a new Windows PC, and I'm wondering which edition of Windows 7 to get. The standard retail customer choices nowadays seem to be Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate.
I need to do the following:
- Open a VPN connection from home to my employer's Windows domain, using my employer's Windows domain credentials.
- While the VPN is connected, connect to file shares on the work network that I have access to.
- While the VPN is connected, open Remote Desktop clients to work PCs that I have access to.
I don't envisage ever needing to connect in the opposite direction.
All the information I have been able to find on the internet concerning Windows 7 seems rather vague. Can anyone confirm, for example, whether Home Premium is sufficient for this, or should I shell out more money to get Professional or Ultimate?
