Which XP is faster?

Hi, just wondering which version of Windows XP is quicker at load-up time?
Home or Professional edition??

Hi, I would think speed depends more on other factors, such as CPU/Memory/HDD etc.

Neither of them.

And the more programs and/or junk you load onto your PC the slower they get. ;-)

From a clean install on exactly the same machine, Pro is slower (1.2sec) due to more services being loaded.

yes but we can disable any unnecessary services if we know what we're doing.
