my understanding was that they did it for xp is because they had combined the nt based os and the dos based os into one NT based xp, hence they had to create two different flavours of xp

what is the difference between win 2000 and win 2000 xp?

XP is fully NT based, there isn't a scrap of DOS about it. THe reason for Home and pro is simply money making for micro$oft. Home is simply a cutdown verson of PRO, a windows xp "lite" if you like.

Actually there were 4 versions of Windows 2000. There was Windows 2000 Pro, Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server and Windows 2000 DataCenter Edition.

There never was a Windows 2000. That was Pro. the Pro was Server. At least in most people's minds. But the true linage of Windows 2000 i put above. There wasnt a plain version.

Windows XP was the hybrid of OS's from M$. It incorporated the 9X platform and the NT platform.

Basically they cut out most of the hardcore Networking features. That is the easiest way to sum it up.

What i meant by that is that the Windows 2000 Pro is what everyone calls Windows 2000. Windows 2000 Server is what people call Windows 200 Pro. Since they didnt realise that there wasnt a Home or basic edition of Windows 2000. Kinda like how we call XP either Jsut XP for Home edition and XP Pro for the Pro. Didnt mean to confuse you on that one.
