click here If you are a home user I cannot think of a single reason to buy pro, put the money saved towards an external HD. This will be of much more use and WILL save your bacon at least once.

XP Pro adds security and networking facilities that Home lacks.

A full explanation of the various flavours of XP can be found on the Microsoft website:

One of the main extras with Pro is(are?) network Domains.

Useful in a large network, naff all use at home.

Save the cash and buy something nice.
