  • Any Networking Probs Between Xp Pro and Home?

    Considering getting XP Pro for my new pc.

    Is it worth it? I guess its another $50+

    Will there be ANY problems networking XP Pro with the XP Home machines I already have?

    I have never tried, but would be willing to bet money that it would be very easy to accomplish.

      Its an extra $57.

      Probably not worth it..... right?

        Winston,

        It depends what you intend to use the XP Professional machine for.

        Are you going to work from home and need higher level of security for that machine?

          If you are just going to use the machine (Professional) for home use, I would never spend the additional 57 dollars on the OS. XP is very easy to network-I doubt very seriously that it would be easier to network XP Pro to XP Home as compared to XP home to XP Home. It really is that simple.

            If you're planning on joining a domain or using remote desktop, Pro is a requirement.


            Other than that, it's not much different.

                Actually XP home and XP pro are built off the exact same kernal.

                Home is the exact same OS minus the networking necessities for business use.

                  BBZ...............

                  I know all the Win OSes from 2K on are built on NT..........I meant it as more of a functionalty thing..............Not the kernel itself..........I talked my old boss into going to NT workstations instead of 98..........It was a step in the right direction...........

                  Trying to network ME or XP home is very........well trying...........Even in a home environ.............But ME is a complete bastardization that never should have been released

                      Your problem lies in ME. I agree that whole thing was a excuse for not releasing XP on time. It should have never happened.

                        Thanks guys, I'm going to get XP Home instead.

                        Its not worth the $57 for me.
