Any thoughts about which version of Windows 7 is best for media work? I have not seen any real references to it in the literature.

Since the core is identical with all Win 7 versions i don't think you will see much of a difference. You will need to check which versions support the hardware you plan to use, multiple CPU support is usualy only available with the pro versions of Windows.

Are you sure?
Does it mean I could install Windows 7 also on an 16-core machine and it will recognize all 4 CPUs (16 cores)?
Ones before I tryed to install Windows XP Pro x64 on a 4 CPU machine but it only recognized 2 CPUs (8 cores). I had to go back to Windows Server OS.

get Ultimate 64. Home premium is missing group policy editor (gpedit.msc) which makes configuration of little things all that much easier without having to resort to tinkering in the registry.

It was stupid of them to leave this out of the home versions.

More than two processor sockets are ususaly only supported by Server versions of Windows, however often Home or basic only support one so you wouldn't be able to use them on Dual Xeons for example.
Check here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7_editions#Comparison_chart) for more detailed informations on what versions of WIndows 7 supports what.
