    I know this is very old but what exactly is different in XP Professional compared to XP Home Edition? :squint:

    I have MCE. I've always wondered what the differences were but was lazy to ask.:mamoru:

    networking.

    a deeper answer than that isn't really neccessary (depending on where you want to use that pc)

    Thanks for the answer.

    I'm a home computer person so I guess it doesn't really matter.

    I was just curious since everyone seems to prefer Professional over Home.

    What's the limit? I think Home limits you to 5 PC's on the network, and also limits you to a peer-to-peer network. @ home with even a few PC's you have no worries.

    Nothing about networking here.
    I confirmed that the Home edition limits you to 5 PC's on a peer-to-peer network. That means no group policy, no domains - nothing that's dependant on a client/server relationship as this is peer-to-peer only.
