I am about to but a new PC. Most come with XP Home but can be upgraded to XP Pro. Can anyone explain the differences between the 2. I still hear from people that Windows 98 is less problematical and I read too many things about driver problems and things not working properly when you change over. What do you think.

Dirver problems only exist with older hardware
XP is an excelent OS

98 was a reasonable OS in its time but then again so was a Pentium before pII/111 etc

More info between the two OS's click here

and look in either or both XP home or XP Pro menus

You can run more games and software on 98se I prefer it but if you want the latest to keep up with the Joneses click here

Full version not an upgrade
