Is upgrading to the ultimate version worth it or shall I stick with my Business Edition?

If you have to ask then you probably don't need the extra benefits so in short - probably not.

Currently if you are in NZ the option to upgrade from one version to another is currently not available unless you purchase the whole OS again.

That may change some time but no Idea when, thats upto MS.

It's hardly worth it. Not for the $$$ involved.

If you want to play movie DVDs in Windows Media Player, you need Home Basic, Home Premium or Ultimate. You can still play DVDs in other programs other than WMP though.

BTW Windows Anytime Upgrade doesn't work in NZ

Unless you get it illegally, you cant downoad it.

Its not like shareware - try then pay for it later.

Its either buy it, or forget it.

Having Ultimate myself, I would have to say no.

If you have access to a Vista DVD - any one will do as they all have every version on them except 64bit - You can install Vista Ultimate and try for 30 days - then it will need a product key and be activated by Microsoft.
I have a Vista Business DVD that I use to install Vista Home Premium or Ultimate all the time.

All correct - the Vista DVD has all versions on it, even some that are not licensed in NZ. Seven Versions in Total.

thanks for all the replies guys~

I guess not worth it to upgrade then! just some fancy upgrades that aren't worth it I suppose
