    I have Windows XP Home edition and my wife uses XP Pro on her computer. Other than it has some annoying things about logging in and such, is there a concensus, or a list of reasons why anyone would want/need to use Pro version over the Home version?

    I did a seach and didn't come up with this idea, so thought I'd just ask.:D

    can't think of anything specific atm, but it seems like most the time that I'm working on an XP Home PC there is always a few features missing that would make things a bit easier... features found on XP Pro

    in my opinion, XP Home is not for the enthusiast, it is for the average Home user that just serfs the net, types email, and plays a few games, etc...

    gpedit.msc To begin with!!!!



    But think of Home as a child of a real OS thats made to be used by the Joe Customer. And Pro is the Power User or grown up version.
