Do you know? please help, im confused!
XP Corporate is another name for XP Professional with a VLK (Volume Licensing Key)
Basically, it's XP Pro that does not require activation.
Does this mean that its more advantageous to have XP corporate if you have multiple computers?
BTW, which one is cheaper, Pro or Corp?
Corp will cost more, of course, since it's meant to be installed on multiple computers. In fact, I highly doubt Microsoft sells volume licenses to home users.
The smallest volume license is ten licenses I think. So it's bound to be more expensive (not per license though)!
Could you make a list or summary of the advantages and disadvantages of XP Corp and Xp Professional?
There is no other difference apart from the number of legal licenses you get.
With XP Pro, you can legally install it on only one desktop and one laptop. XP Pro requires activation.
With XP Corp, you are given more licenses, which means you can install it on more than one computer. As Zedric said, the smallest volume license allows you to install it on 10 computers. XP Corp does not require activation.
XP Corp == XP Pro
XP Corp is intended for installation on multiple machines, which is why it doesn't need a CD-key.
 NetRyder beat me.. with a better desciption too
thanks a lot! thanks for your time and help!
It does need a CD key, just doesnt need a activation crap.
Oop, that's what I meant my bad.
You can fully automate the install of corporate, un-like pro which you can automate to an extent, and then each machine would need activating.
