    You only really need XP pro for if you're planning to setup some kind of server.

    no, just get xp home. or just stick with your old system for a while longer, xp isnt that much of an advance.

    no, you won't even be able to tell the difference unless your a complete nerd boy. My server runs off xp home and the others using xp pro purly because i can't be arsed changing the ox on my server. XP pro is only needed for insane complex networks and servers etc.

    .. and even then you should use a server OS, like windows 2000, 2003, or one of the many excellent open source OS's (my fave is FreeBSD)

    I believe XP Pro has built in encryption tools (I think...) but quite why anyone would trust MS with anything involving security is beyond me.

    Also, and IMO far more usefully, it has Remote Desktop. It means I can leave my uni computer on, and connect to it remotely if I go home and get files off it, access uni network etc etc.

    Both i'd say are a load of rubbish, when at school anyway, the school computers have updated their systems FINALLY buts its so crap, they've RM filtered everything, Wat the hells the point of xp then.
    Anyway soz i don't know the difference between the two.
