Default Win 7: home 16gb RAM, pro 192gb RAM?

I'm still having a hard time choosing between Win 7: home vs pro. for home purpose computer.

I thought I read Win 7: home limits you to 16gb of RAM anf pro 192gb?

I assume this is the amount of RAM you put in your MOBO?

Other then then this and the encryption thing with Win 7. Does anyone realy see an advantage to using Win 7 pro. for home use? Or just buy the home premium?

You think you're going to use more than 16GB of RAM then get Pro, or not. If you can afford it I'd just get Pro anyways.

Id get Pro, you get extra features like RDP and EFS which I find are good to have.
Don't like what I say, ban me!
