it’s a great friday – today you can reserve your production copy of the windows 7 upgrade for as little as $49.99!  the professional version upgrade is only $99.99.  not certain which version you’re interested in?  check out the pricing and capabilities here.  i have been using windows vista home premium for over three years at home and with windows home server addressing the domain issue (backing up and centralizing my critical data) it’s worked out great.  with windows 7 and the windows virtual pc that will run on windows 7 professional (as well as the fact that there aren’t consumer features left out of the business edition), i will most likely standardize most of my home computers on windows 7 professional (netbooks or older equipment that can’t take advantage of windows virtual pc will be an exception and i’ll run windows 7 home premium on those).
