I have both, Home on this comp, XP Pro on the other.

To be honest with ya i prefer Home, just seems more 'cosy' :)

Both seem to work fine. Only real advantage I see for Pro is to connect to a Domain network. P2P works fine in Home...

Pro of course :) It has a lot more functions than home edition :D Just look at the price :rolleyes:
Home is not full enough with functions, it seems to be a family OS (the name is well chosen). If you're an advanced user (personal network at home, sharing printers, files, etc...) Windows XP Professionnel is a lot better. With Pro you can crypt your datas :D

I like Home, because I don't have 200+ dollars to give out so I can go to Pro.
