Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate - IME/MUI questions
Posted on 2009-07-15
I'm planning to upgrade my Vista 64bit Ulitmate to Windows 7 at some point and can't work out whether I need Ultimate or the Professional version.
My decision will entirely be based on what language tools for Japanese will be availlable for the professional version.
Basically, I do not need the interface to be in Japanese but I do need to be able to write (on a tablet PC) using the WIndows 7 Japanese "IME Pad" (ie using it's handwritten Japanese Character input capability).
Is the Japanese IME pad going to be included in Windows 7 Pro? Will it be the full IME (as in the Windows 7 RC) or some cut down version? Are there any additional aspects to the MUI other than the IME and reskinned interface that I should be aware of?
Ultimately, will I need to go the whole hog and fork out 3x the amount for Ultimate just for this function?
