Re: Media Center and XP? Difference?
I've found that media center had a lot of stability issues. I had it on my PC before I got a new HDD with Home Edition OEM and I had nothing but trouble with it. The media center liked to crash a lot and wouldn't load a lot of the time. I prefer home edition because it's cheaper and it seems to be more stable. Pro is good too but I have no use for all the extra stuff in it.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
