A person I found in the Friday Ad, getting Visual Studio 2003 EE from him soon after he moves and is sorted out in his new house.

I would tell you his e-mail, but I don't think he'd like it.

Yeah, I'd imagine few people need the extras. But that doesn't mean not to buy it!

Not that many useful things - good if you have a Home Network or indeed a Network in itself. Pretty lucrative if you're the Admin of a School Network and you need to buy the rights to 200 Windows 2000 Licences; when you could go to your superiors and say you've got Windows XP for their machines and it will cost half the money! And then you can pay the 20 and take the, I don't know, 750 it would cost otherwise!

No, really, what I like is the Encyption - although I have no use for it - and the User Acocunt Tools. I don't know whether it works on Home; you can try it for me if you want, but if you put 'control userpasswords2' in the Run Prompt then a nice Windows 2000 Pro Style User Accounts Panel which is nice. Also, when your friends or anybody comes round and you switch the computer on, its nice to see a Windows XP Professional Boot Screen!
