Hi,
The main reason is because I want to run Internet Information Server (IIS), so that I can develop ASP.NET applications.

Hi Catweazle,
if there is such little difference between Home & Pro, I wonder why there isn't an upgrade patch available to convert Home to Pro? Is it because Microsoft doesn't want us to do it?

heh heh....

Considering the price difference between the two, no I don't reckon they do :D

You get differences in default permissions and settings, extra tools like the Group Policy Editor, the Defrag tool is better in XP Pro and stuff like that, but basically they're the same thing. There's other differences, but nothing to effect most Windows users. Your reason to change, of course, is a valid one.

I'm just glad you're not a user who's decided to change because someone told them "Pro is better", which is why I asked :)

Cheers.
