Default Whats better?

I have the ability to use Windows XP Professional (without any sp)

or Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2

which one is better? - that sp2 is tempting, but I don't like home edition

Why can't you use the WinXP Pro and just update to SP2?

Buy an OEM XP Pro with SP2 integrated. Get yourself off the black list!
