Since we are on the topic of OS's, what is the difference between XP Home, and XP Professional. Is there a noticable difference between the 2?

professional has more networking and security features that home doesnt have. but besides that, they are almost exactly the same.

yup, and the main features i've noticed is home doesn't have remote desktop/ assistance. and there are no advanced file sharing options.
