Now, XP Pro is about a hundred dollars more expensive than XP Home, so I'm rooting for getting the cheaper one but my mother is quite insistent that Home isn't as good.
First: I looked up the features that vary and they don't look like they matter much at all, but what are your experiences?
(I mostly am going to use this thing for gaming and internet surfing.)
Second: Where can I get a copy of XP, either kind, more cheaply than I could get it at walmart or compusa? (Not counting warez or similar, as my mother would have a FIT and I'd be afraid they'd send someone to kill me)
