  1. Difference btw XP Pro & XP Home?

    Hey guys i was wondering if there was a big difference between win xp
    pro and home
    the thing is that i got a laptop - 800mhz transmeta crusoe cpu with
    240mb ram (its a fascinating little machine) but it came with xp home.
    i have xp pro and 2000 and i was wondering which operating system is
    best for such computer, i would like it to be a bit faster. i dont
    care much about security.
    i was wondering if i can mess around with the os to make it somewhat
    faster.

    The biggest difference between XP Home Edition and XP Professional is the
    networking aspects. Windows XP Pro is aimed at networking whereas Home is
    not. You CAN network Home Edition, but only simple network with minimum
    security - XP Pro has the ability to join a Windows DOMAIN but XP Home does
    not. Basically, XP Home is for "Peer-to-Peer" network at best, and XP Pro
    is for a more Corporate, more Secure Network.

    Hope that helps you. If you don't have any requirement to be a member of a
    computer domain, then go with Home Edition.

    All the best.
