Home on my desktop PC and Pro on my laptop only because my school requires it. It doesn't really matter to me.

if you imagine for a minute you will find out what is the difference between Xp home and Xp pro. The difference is price.
Always remember that expensive things are better than the cheap things. If you want to have a comfortable and more useful OS so use Xp Professional. :D :)

Lol everyone who claim and use Window Pro don't know what the different between the two. They just say it's better! Or more Network!

I'm using Home Edition right now and I can't even tell the different between the two.

Had Pro installed before, now using Home. No difference for me, whatsoever. Certainly not any stability issues as earlier mentioned.

PROFESSIONAL.... for Stability ....


I don't really understand how XP Pro is more stable than Home. After all, both use the same kernal and virtually the same system files and services.

XP Pro has a wider variety of network protocols and settings, improved user permissions and security, file encryption support, multi processor support, ASR (backup), and Internet Information Services (for web servers).

There is not a great amount of noticeable difference between the two editions. Professional is probably not the right word to describe the latter edition. It is aimed at businesses and should be more properly named "Enterprise" or "Business" edition.


The instalation of Pro requires 1GB space of hard disk more than Home.


I do not know who has spread this misconception. If you use the default install, XP Pro requires approx. 120mb more disk space, not 1gb.

Windows XP MCE 2005 here. its based on XP pro.


Media Center Edition has no differences from Pro except for a pretty full screen application for media PC's.

PRO because it's better


They say ignorance is bliss. I would definatley agree in the case of this and other similiar posts.
