    Will replacing Windows XP Pro with Windows .NET Server (Clean Install) be worth it? Should I consider doing it even though my PC is mainly for desktop purposes and not a 24/7 server.

    Is Windows .NET more stable than the Pro version and faster? Does it handle gaming as good as the Pro version?

    Let me know the differences between the two or any other versions of Windows .NET.

    you got the answer within your question.
    you use the comp for as a desktop environment, supposedly just for giggling around with games and cool themes.
    If your computing needs stop at using the newest hardware, the highest screen resolution, online gaming and storing a gazillion terabytes of games and multimedia on your machines then forget about servers... remove also XP PRO and clean install XP Home Edition, that will do for you... and it should fit more your needs than the PRO version.

    You don't compare a client with a server system upon speed and stability criteria. They have completely different features, usage and workload. But if you are addicted to getting the latest of everything then install Windows .NET Server 2003 Datacenter Server and see how it works, after all you seem to have a machine that meets .NET system requirements.

    Anyway if you really want to know more about that, start here:
