    Windows XP Home vs XP PRO
    What are the differences between Windows XP for Home Use, and Windows XP Professional? Does the professional version have anything more than the home edition, and if so, what does it have?
    Thank you!

    Generally speaking, XP Pro has extra administrative, networking, and support tools that are not part of XP Home.

    The Microsoft website actually has a good comparison showing you lots of the details in their difference.

    Personally, I prefer XP Pro, only because I am used to the networking aspects of it, and I hate that XP Home doesn't support the same Administrative shares that XP Pro uses.
