    Upgarde home to pro (xp sp2 )

    I have been a happy home user of xp however I was wondering about upgrading to pro. Is this a preferred option to a more secure pc and if so where can I get and downloaded copy asap?

    Best to find out what you will gain by upgrading to XP Pro from XP Home, and if you actually want any of those gains!

    Read the articles found by Googling for compare windows xp home pro and you should get a good idea of the advantages of Pro over Home.

    If you decide to buy the upgrade, it is not particularly cheap!

    Do you really want to spend the MONEY to do that, especially if you're a happy and successful user? I think if "security" is your concern, for a home user, you're just as well served to use application software for virus protection, malware detection and removal, and so forth, even if you have a small LAN in your home. You probably already do those things, right? Unless you need some other features of Pro, I think I'd stay right where you are and save yourself $100 bucks or so. As to "where" I'd say all you've got to do is Google up a vendor, either in Oz or some other location, but beware of what sounds like REALLY low prices. You could get ripped off with a pirated knockoff.
