that you can not upgrade from windows 7 home to windows 7 ultimate, you would be required to purchase the new operating system.

Consider saving some money.

You can buy Windows 7 Ultimate OEM edition. It's exactly the same as the boxed version with the one caveat being that it can only go on one machine per lifetime. <br>
If you're thinking of seriously upgrading hardware (motherboard/CPU) in the near-future upgrade hardware before software. If an upgrade is a year or more down the road buy the commercially boxed version.

Anytime Upgrade

"IF" your hardware supports Ultimate, you should be able to use the anytime upgrade option and just pay for the upgrade to Ultimate.

I STRONGLY recommend that you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser (download ONLY from Microsoft) and make sure that your hardware supports running the Ultimate edition.

Then, if you are going to run Windows 7 Ultimate, why not also upgrade to Visual Studio 2010?

If you cannot upgrade to Visual Studio 2010, then skip 2005 and install 2008.
