From Wikipedia: Containing all features from Home Basic, this edition will also support more advanced features aimed for the home market segment, such as HDTV support and DVD authoring. Extra premium games, mobile and tablet PC, network projector, touchscreen, and auxiliary display (via Windows SideShow) support, and a utility to schedule backups are also included. Home Premium supports 10 simultaneous peer network connections (compared to 5 in Home Basic). The version of Meeting Space included will also allow for interaction (in Home Basic, meetings may only be viewed). This edition is comparable to Windows XP Media Center Edition. 64-bit Home Premium will support up to 16 GB of physical memory, and will be supported until 2012.

well, i've finally bit the bullet and got a new system with vista home premium. No complaints so far. Rock solid, clean (after I configured it right), sleeps, hibernates, wakes up, works great. Boots up really fast.

I really like the windows media center that comes with it by default.

That said... cancel/allow is really annoying indeed :P  lol  Every little thing... sometimes multiple times in a row.  The Mac/Bunu way of have a sudo really is much better.

Disable many of the visual effects for SIGNIFICANT improvements in performance especially if you have a crappy video card, or not enough RAM.
