I was wondering where I can get the best versions of the Romero and also the Argento cuts of Dawn of the dead. Any region is fine.

Wow, great news! Thanks alot.
For anyone that can't wait for nearly a year, there's also the Dutch version containing both the main versions that most tend to be after, but not the shorter US cut that will be in the unpcoming Anchor Bay release.
I got mine from: http://www.proxis.be
Register and all the prices will be in your own currency.

Full specs of the dutch version can be found here
I got this a few month back from www.freerecordshop.com for €9.99. It still looks like it is availlable at this price.

I'd avoid Proxis at all costs if you're in the USA. They do not seem to like Americans.
Really? Can you elaborate on that? I've never dealt with them but I'm curious to your experiences with them.

by all means, folks, if you have a region free, etc, et al...get the ab. if anything, you want it for the common-trees (one with georgie, one with allfour principals), and the fact that it contains the theatrical cut, which georgie boy says himself is superior to the so-called directors cut of vhs and out-of-print days. the director's cut edition we all know and loathe here is only minutely different, with a few insignificant additionals that don't really perceptively alter the pace upon a viewing, but compared with the theatrical cut (some minor score choices are appearant aides to the cause, as well as the occasional line trimming...again, nothing significant, just reactionary lines that add almost nothing...writers hacking along like i am right now...) pacing is sluggish and tends to ramble on a bit (again, as do i...i betcha noticed that tendency too...but hey, it reads like just cats talkin..)...
plus, if anchor bay goes the full 9 like we're all preying (yes, PREYING like a mantis for a jibe)...we just may get the soundtrack, no....wait...lemmie try again....
godlin's immortal and far reaching musical gaze into the future of how music is made....THE FREAKIN' SCORE! SO WE CAN ALL TRASH THAT SH***Y F****N' PIECEA COW A**ED TURD-MUFFIN PUKE ON CHROMIUM OR WHATEVER PIG-FECES MAKES GOD**NM AUDIO CD'S CINEVOX THAT YOU GOTTA TURN YOUR S**T WAY THE HELL UP TO GET IT TO SOUND LIKE ITS THE MOVIE PLAYING EVERYTHING BUT THE DIALOG THROUGH A (attempts to capitalise letters even larger, fails, but wails on...)HAZE OF STATIC AND HISS!!!!
and don't tell me to switch to decaf and use wavelab or some poo to boost signal...all you get is LOUDER HAZE OF STATIC AND HISS!!!!
damn, i gotta quit watching daria....my eye hurts. and someone's standing on my neck!
