    Both based on the same kernal
    the only real difference is pro is geared up for networking

    The home version might use less resources than pro, I'm not sure, I've never used the Home version... If it does, then chances are it might be a bit better in that sense.

    Home uses less resources BY DEFAULT

    Simpily turning off the extra services in pro I think makes it the same.
