    Okay - some fool has to vote for Home

    Reasoning - I got rid of my four year old Compaq running Win98, bought a new puter and it had XP Home as OEM - so I like Home (of course I never used Pro & already wish Home had a b/u prog).

    One thing I can say though - unlike my Compaq which BSOD'd on average every four or less hours - I have not see a BSOD in XP since I got the puter (8 Feb 2002) Better knock on wood!!

    HOME for me..

    why? cheaper... and 90% of people out there won't use the extra network security features and dual-cpu support that pro provides.

    i got home pre installed so it's all i need, why do i need pro if home does all my need's?
     
  13. I ain't got home installed, but Proffesional makes me sound better, so i'm going with that.

    Had Pro installed since October...

    It's worked fine, but I wonder if I'd be better suited to Home, since I do use it at home.

    But then again proffesional does sound better! :D
     
  18. What is a b/u program?
    what does that mean, mentioned above?
