I think pro also has encryption capabilities to secure your data. If you are a paranoid one that is.... While I don't quite know the exact details about how XP pro implements secure storage, I can't see it being very secure against someone who has physical access to you HD. Just delaying the inevitable. After all, the security can only be as secure as your password. a 8 letter/digit password is hardly sufficient for encryption these days.

Perhaps, there is a good use for that thumbprint scanner I saw on newegg the other day..........

Personally, when I am away from home, I don't really "want" to do any work!. That's why I am away. lol. But, some users like to do work, check up on their servers running on the machine, logs, acess files, etc. etc. when they are away..
