I'm ordering up my first HTPC system and all I wanted to know was if there were any advantages or disadvantages to going with Windows XP pro over the standard XP home addition?


Dell only charges $60 to upgrade to pro so the money part isn't really an issue for me.


Does all software run on either OS just as well be it home theater software or even just AOL for that matter?


Thanks

All software will run identically on either Pro or Home. The main advantages of Pro are better networking and security. The remote desktop feature of Pro is compelling for some HTPC users. If the main use of this box will be as a HTPC to which multiple users will have access, you might want to go with Pro.
