Personally I have all but the tablet version that I use on different PC's around here. But I run Pro mostly.

*EDIT*

I use the Pro version because it's got most of what I need on it as well as being much more secure than Home. The MCE edition, I use to watch/record videos on, then I port them to the Pro to convert to WMV. Which I can then send to the Home computers for viewing.

Windows XP Profession Corporate counts as Professional, it's just the Volume version of Professional. And yes I use my legal copy of Corporate because I hate activation too. I'd like to get a MCE computer up and running though. I'm thinking about a Tablet PC, but I'm not sure I'd use it...

I use pro because, well, it is what I bought.. I use very liitlle of the "features" gained by having pro.. Speaking of those features, the CD burning in Windows XP's explorer based burning is so horrid, tried it maybe once after each "update" came out for it, then went back to using nero for even the simplist things that the explorer based burning addition should have been able to do. :lol:

I have a licence for winxp home.

I chose home edition for myself, 'coz it is cheaper than pro, and doesn't really miss out on what I need to do at home. But there's a number of PCs that we support that run XP Pro Corp., so I figured its sufficient to use home edition at home.

I use the Windows XP Professional because I think the features of Windows XP Pro is better than Windows XP Home, MCE, Table PC.

Maybe I will use the Table PC because I need to talk with other people.

I use Pro because it came with my computer, I can host a Remote Desktop Connection without any additional software, and I can use Microsoft Virtual PC.
