Default Xp home vs Xp pro

How big of a difference is there between the two? Ive got Pro on the dell comp I have now but on my upcoming build I am thinking of saving some money and getting home.

Well if you want the computer to run fast. Then get Home. Pro is just filled with a bunch of useless crap, that only businesses need. You will NEVER use it. I can almost guarentee that. Get home. It's basicly the same thing anyway. Just you dont have the crappy "professional" stuff.
