    No. They simply moved all the updates to WindowsUpdate. They discontinued the catalog updating system... XP Corp still works and will work until the Windows XP end of life comes into play.

    so getting it for $43 off ebay is a good idea? (or should i just stay with home, though i would like to back up all my data, get a new HD and do a clean install of XP using NTFS.

    To be honest, if you buy XP Corp off Ebay, you could be facing some serious problems. For one, XP Corp is a special licence for corporations. It is not to be sold. Most people who obtain XP via WAREZ try to sell it. I would recommend just getting XP Pro. The only difference between corp and pro is that corp does not require initial activation.
