I currently have Pro but somewhat have problems on games like slow games & parang mabagal yung mga boot up & pag load ng sofwares. nung naka win98Se naman ako hindi naman ganito . should i change to WinXp

people correct me if i'm wrong. sa aking pagkakaalam, the pro version has networking options while the home doesn't.

marami-rami. to name a few.

home is limited to be used only on single-CPU systems while pro can take advantage of multiple CPUs.

home has no remote desktop, while pro has remote desktop.

sa tingin ko mas may potential ang XP Pro dahil may mga features na tinanggal sa Home Edition.... its just my preference guess...

pero kung gaming at net surfing (even kung sa office application), i think okay na rin ang home edition... especially

check your rigs first if it meets the minimum system requirements of XP. you should have atleast 128MB memory. Don't install games which are 95/98 support only. Win2K supported games will work fine in XP.

As for the Home or Pro, I suggest go for th

i think if you have 128mb of ram and you're a gamer, you're better off muna with Win98SE or at most, Win2k. WinXP really needs at least 256mb of RAM. compatibility-wise, wala namang major issue ang current games na working sa Win9x to Win2k/XP.

the thing that prevents me into migrating my sis' PC (P3-733, 128mb PC133, GF2MX, 20g HDD) to 2k/XP is that of a bit steep RAM demands. kaya now, she is stuck muna with Win98SE... So far, the performance is fine with that, compared when I tried Win2k..

OT: hehehe... actually micr0$0ft should have set it 'minimum recommended' specs to 256MB... windows xp suffers a significant performance hit with 128MB, even with the fastest CPUs. my example: when i was using Win98SE and playing Operation: Flashpoint, lo

To be able to enjoy the perks of Windows XP, Home or Pro version, your RIG should have 512 MB of RAM...

the more RAM you installed, the better the XP to perform.  Remember, XP's apettite for RAM is important.  It is always hungry!!!  hehehehe...

of course..games will also improve as well as surfing the net.

less errors, more enhancement...(i

of course, don't invest on RAM that much if all you're going to do is gaming and netsurfing. I guess, for XP, 256mb is enough. you can invest on other stuffs like better video card or faster CPU or faster/larger HDD.
