Updating Win XP ?

I have been running on Win XP Home Edition for the last 2 years and wanted to upgrade to Win XP Pro but when I tried I was told that my version of Win was newer than the one on the disc!. I have not long installed the SP2 and am wondering if that is the reason why?.... Anyhoo.. my main question now is this: Is it worth me uninstalling my OS completely then re-install XP Pro ?..is it worth it?

I've got Win XP Pro on a PC and XP Home on another PC, and I cannot really find any difference. Apart from the blue desktop Windows XP background, I can't find anything that my XP Home is lacking compared to the Pro.

There is definately a difference, click here to see what. But I don't think its much of a difference.

I agree with Charence, I am also running both versions and can see little point in going to the expense or trouble of an upgrade from Home to Pro.
