I can get a OEM version of XP pro brand new for $113.00. Or I can get a brand new OEM version of XP home for $91.00.

I would like to know is XP pro any better as for stabability wise or what makes it more costly.

I know getting XP pro even OEM for that little is very cheap but should I go for XP pro or XP home?

I have XP home on my laptop and have enjoyed its almost error and glitch free use. So is XP pro more stable than XP home?

Or is the price increase for the extra features?

One more question for you all. Is getting a OEM product any worse than getting a Manufacturer sealed item?

Or is buying OEM products being a smart shopper? I mean sites like newegg.com and tigerdirect.com thrive on OEM products and they will get you them for very cheap in some cases.

Thanks everyone who will respond!

It will not let me edit this message even though its only been a few hours. I figured out the details on XP pro. Its mainly for networking and jobs.

I have no need for it so Im going for XP home. Just to let you all know this.

Though you've already made your decision on which version of XP you're buying,
I thought this item might still be of interest to you.
