Searching on eBay I found an interesting edition of Windows Vista Ultimate called Commemorative Edition. Is there anything included in this edition of Windows different from a standard Ultimate disk?

No. The only thing "special" was a photocopied Bill Gates signature with a limited run.

The Commemorative Edition is a separate product from the Signature Edition (the latter has the signature of Bill Gates). Nevertheless, neither version offers new content or features. The (PRODUCT) RED version, however, has unique content.

It would help if the company had not created so many product editions (and several variants of at least one product edition).
