Default Vista ultimate or premium?

Vista ultimate or premium?
I have xp pro on one of my machines and want to change to vista but I want to know if premium is worth it or should I go with ultimate? I have ultimate on my main machine and love it. My only reason is that I have a vista home premium disc that I have and it is fully legal but was wondering what the main difference would be. I seem to find it is very similar except for remote desktop which I think is important because I am networked. What would you do?

home premium. Ultimate isnt worth the extra cost.

ultimate has like 3 extras, and none of them are worth a crap other than bitlocker.

What about remote desktop connection which is important to me. Is there a free alternative?

Remote desktop is on all versions of windows by default. Even 2000 can use it if you install the addon.

It says on the comparison it is not on home premium. What would I need to do?
