  • If you mean the difference between Home Basic and Home Premium - a lot. The consensus is that Home Basic is a waste of most peoples' time because it doesn't really come with anything that defines Vista as a new, feature-rich OS. In fact Home Basic has less as an operating system than XP. I would never recommend Home Basic to anyone. My opinion.
  • Vista Editions: "Home Basic Home Basic N Home Premium Business Business N Ultimate" Key features: 1. Most secure Windows ever with Windows Defender and Windows Firewall 2. Quickly find what you need with Instant Search and Windows Internet Explorer 7 3. Elegant Windows Aero desktop experience with glass-like menu bars, Flip 3D, and Live Thumbnails 4.

Easily make DVDs with Windows DVD Maker 13. Have more fun on your PC with three new premium games: Chess Titans, Mahjong Titans, and Inkball 14. Create high definition movies with Windows Movie Maker in High Definition" Home Basic has just features 1 and 2 Home Premium has all features except 8, 10 and 11. Source: https://www.microsoft.com/uk/windows/products/windowsvista/editions/n/choose.mspx If you want to have some fun and a good working OS, take Premium. For very easy applications and very reduced needs, take Basic (but I wouldn't for a real home PC).
