Re: xp vs pro
There is no slowdown between them. The slowdown only occurs cause of applications installed which has nothign to do with the OS itself. Since we can not accurately test the OS speed sicne we each have different systems and different applications installed. But even under VMWare i have not been able to get any speed difference between the OS's.
Pro was made for netowrking and businesses. IT was made to be easily connected to and work out from. Home was not so easy. I have been able to work with Pro on netowrks 10x more easily then Home. Home is basically for the people who are not power users and who basically use the net for things like email and web surfing. For the rest of us Pro is the way to go.
