    Windows XP Home Edition vs. Professional Edition, What's the difference? from Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows has a good summary of the differences.
    On the Microsoft site there is the Windows XP Comparison Guide

    Group Vice President Jim Allchin said that the company was working hard to further differentiate the products. "With XP, the home version is what it is," Allchin said. "But where we're going, we've named them appropriately. In the future, this will make more sense. We will do more value add in Pro in the future."

    Couldn't be clearer, could it?!

    Are you thinking about installing Windows XP?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Not for myself since it contains the Registration/Activation Wizard. I am ordering a new computer for someone else, and don't have a choice of W2K.
