    Hello Poliguaco, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Windows 8 Enterprise is more for corporations. The closest to Windows 7 Ultimate would be Windows 8 Pro, but you can use the link below to compare the features between them to help make sure that you get the edition that has all the features you need.

    Compare Windows 8 Editions

    and

    Compare Windows 7 Editions - Windows 7 Forums


    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Windows 8.1 Pro


    Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise are exactly the same, with the exception of their product keys and how they are activated.

    Since there are basically only two editions, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro/Ent (not counting the N and K versions, because they are region limited versions due to laws in those regions and RT because it's only available from OEM's on devices), Windows 8 is equivalent to Windows 7 home, and Windows 8 pro is equivalent to everything else.

    Hello Mystere,

    Sorry, but that is just not exactly true.

    Please see: Compare Windows 8 Editions


    Windows 8 Enterprise includes all the features of Windows 8 Pro plus features for IT organizations that enable PC management and deployment, advanced security, virtualization, new mobility scenarios, and much more.

    • Windows To Go is a fully manageable corporate Windows 8 desktop on a bootable external USB stick. This will allow IT organizations to support the “Bring Your Own PC” trend and businesses can give contingent staff access to the corporate environment without compromising security.
    • DirectAccess allows remote users to seamlessly access resources inside a corporate network without having to launch a separate VPN and helps IT administrators keep remote users’ PCs in compliance by applying the latest policies, software updates, is easier to deploy, and it can be implemented with the existing IPv4 infrastructure.
    • BranchCache allows users’ PCs to cache files, websites, and other content from central servers, so content is not repeatedly downloaded across the wide area network (WAN). When used with Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 brings several improvements to BranchCache to streamline the deployment process, optimize bandwidth over WAN connections and ensure better security and scalabilty.
    • AppLocker can help mitigate issues by restricting the files and apps that users or groups are allowed to run.
    • VDI enhancements: Enhancements in Microsoft RemoteFX and Windows Server 2012, provide users with a rich desktop experience with the ability to play 3D graphics, use USB peripherals and use touch-enabled devices across any type of network (LAN or WAN) for VDI scenarios.
    • New Windows 8 App Deployment: Domain joined PCs and tablets running Windows 8 Enterprise will automatically be enabled to side-load internal, Windows 8 Metro style apps.

    One clarification. Media Center is not available in Enterprise version. Not even as a downloadable add-in. In Pro version it is available.

    Actually Brink is right. Not even the Professional version comes with Media Center, it's an upgrade option. You can't really call an upgrade option a feature. So he is right when he says Enterprise comes with all the features of the Professional version.
