Probably for some, I'd rather get the whole product and then decide by myself what to install and how to configure it in order to adapt the product to my hardware and needs.

Why not save the money up front just in case you decide not to upgrade for one reason or another? It is indeed a good option.

That depends on the price. I don't think windows ultimate would be anywhere near as expensive if it was the only released version.

Back to the Doom3 example, if it was 60, would the crippled version have been 30 or would they have released it for 50 increasing the premium one to 80? Obviously there's no way to know, but I highly doubt they'd have released a full game for half the average price, even if it was crippled in resolution.
