You are forgetting a few things:

a) Microsoft fixed it so that you only need to buy the upgrade version. Nobody needs to spend that amount for Ultimate. Microsoft has no intention of 'unfixing' this anytime soon.

b) Shop around and you can get this much more cheaply. Apple does not offer OEM versions, for one.

c) Retail versions come with both disks, so no need to contact Microsoft. I know; I am running Ultimate on my MBP.

d) Students will not be paying anything like $116 for Ultimate. Discounts are more generous, here.

e) Microsoft supports many more native languages out of the box. This is a big deal for me, and the only reason I got Vista over XP. With Leopard, you get Russian, Polish and Iberian Portuguese over Tiger. Big whoop.
