As people keep saying there is virtually no difference between the 2 O/S? [url=***********.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/howtobuy/choosing2.asp]HERE you can find a list of what the difference is between XP Home & XP Pro.

As you can see there are 11 features that are in XP Pro that are not in XP Home.

Regards

I made the statement that there is virtually no difference.

I will restate that "Under The Hood" there is virtually no difference between the 2 versions. I've run both versions for years and see no difference in stability that would be related to these differences.

maseline_98 believes that these 11 additional features make XP Pro more stable than XP Home. If you have something that supports maseline_98's position then lets hear it as I'd be interested in knowing. Cheers.

I wont do less then 1gb of ram with xp since once you run a bunch of IE's or programs, you simply need the extra ram.

Your experience is vastly different than mine. I've run XP Pro on 256 MB SDRAM for a long time. Granted if you are running graphics programs or sound editing you need lots of RAM but the average user will do nicely with 256 - 512 RAM.

I was agreeing with you, and i was just stating what the differences are. for the people that keep on asking the same question time after time.
