Is Prof. better than home? I know it has more features and more secure, but is it worth me spending the extra £30 or so too buy the OEM version of Win XP Pro, rather than home?

What will you be using it for?

believe it is worth the extra £30... you're getting a whole host of feature that i believe are worth more than £30 extra.

software that needs to run on the pro version, so i have no choice, but if i did i'd always go for the pro version anyway.

How much better are they than Me + 2000?
I know XP is based on 2000 etc.
