      Arrow What's the difference between Windows XP Home and XP Pro

      Question:
      What's the difference between Windows XP Home and XP Pro?

      Answer:
      Both flavors of Win XP have the same applications and multimedia features but Pro also includes corporate network support, backup , and security like those found in Windows 2000 Pro. Every feature found in Home Edition should be found in Pro, but since Pro is designed primarily for corporate networking it expands on many features found in Home. Since it is designed for business use, the user interface in Pro is different (it wears a suit and tie while pro wears jeans with a T-shirt :-) The default setting are different as well.

      Remote Desktop is a neat feature that functions differently between the two types. It allows an XP Home Computer to control an XP Pro computer from another location allowing you to work away from the office. The Home computer can only act as the controlling computer and the Pro system can only act as the "controlee".

      A cool feature of Pro is the Roaming User Profile. On a network this lets you access all your documents and settings from any computer no matter where you log on at.

      Something to consider if upgrading: Both Pro and Home can upgrade from Win 98/ME but only Pro can upgrade from Win NT/2000

      So, basically, XP Home is just that—a version designed especially for Home users. XP Pro, meanwhile, is geared toward business and "advanced" networking (you can create a network with XP Home, but you don't have as much control as Pro).

      Most tips I give for XP should work on both versions unless noted otherwise.

      For the most part, they are the same. The security "features" available in XP Pro are available in home, but you have to boot into safe mode for them. Which is time consuming and basically sucks.

      Greetings Los!

      Welcome to the PC Tech Forum!

      Yes, both XP home and XP pro anre similar to a great degree.
      A lot of the same features of the XP Pro version are buried
      in the home version.

      I agree the user has to work too hard to get to some of these
      features, which in and of itself can become very frustrating and
      is time consuming.

      Thank you for checking out the post and taking the time to share
      your views with us here at the forum. We value your input

      Peace & Blessings!
