Default IS this true???

I was going to get a Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition; then someone told me that its not worth it because it dont support alot of hardware?
I was some what relieved that i was told that because i am on a budget and that was quite expensive.
Also Whats the difference between Home and normal Professional?

don't bother with the 64 bit edition it is glitchy as ****. proffessional is better than home and has more functionality and access controls.

all i really want to do is play games and go on the internet, so home would do fine unless professional has something that would help me?

For what you want, Home will do you fine.
