    I bought Vista Ultimate because I needed to be able to RDP into my machine (please, step off with the "just use VNC")

    Now, granted it's only a $20 difference between the Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate Upgrade pricing, but now that Windows 7 Pro has remote desktop and I don't need Ultimate -- does anyone know if Windows Vista Ultimate --> Windows 7 Professional is a supported upgrade path or will I need to do a full install?  If the latter, I'd rather just pay the extra $20 and get Ultimate, as reconfiguring/reinstalling everything ain't worth $20 in savings.


    fknight, you can buy the Win7 Professional upgrade disc, but you'll need to do a full install (which will more your Windows, Program Files, and Users folders into a "Windows.old" directory).
