im guessing that pro has more advanced options... for the "pros" hence the name XP pro.

I use Professional, and the only benefit I see in Pro over Home is networking tools.

I have a pc running windows xp home, and a pc running xp pro, the pc's are diff speeds, but when I run the ctrl - alt - delete manager. The resources seem really close in comparison. I find Home and Pro about the same price on ebay. So I went with pro on one of my other pcs. I can't tell the difference. I'm running two Systems with XP Pro, with 2 gigs of ram. I don't see a difference, between those and a pc running 1 gig of ram.

Ive heard that Pro is more stable, as well as having a lot more drivers preloaded (not much of a deal if you have an internet connetion though).

I use Professional. It's OK. I don't like it, I liked MCE much better.
