Which Windows XP is best?

i just figured out how to remove linux and winME and now i'm wondering which OS is better for me. i have xp home, pro and pro corporate. is it true that pro is an evolution of win 2000 and home is an evolution of the 9x serie like ME? can i use pro on a fat32 partition?
My system is a PIII @1200Mhz, 768Mb ram, geforce2 gts,2 hd quantum fireball 20Gb/9Gb, px40ta reader, px161040 burner, creative 5x dvd drive, adaptec 2904 scsi controller, sblive basic, michelangelo adsl modem usb, hp dj 690 printer, oh and my mobo is an Abit vh6-2. i know it is an old system but it is FAST.
Will it have compatibility problems with pro?
I usually don't play very much, but i love Mame and all the other emulators..., will they still work on pro?
other than this i use my pc to download and burn mp3 and videoclips, to make div-x avis and soon i'm gonna learn some html programming...
So, i ask you all, which of the three should i chose?
Does any1 have a nice link to learn xp tweaking, tips & tricks an so on? (i.e. how to uninstall m$ messenger)

Well hardware compatability in xp isnt bad from what i have found, it just does not agree with my TV card because modular technology are too bloody lazzy to produce some xp drivers :mad: . XP home and pro are based on the same thing (2K) i think, the home verson is just a stripped down verson of pro, without things like NTFS partition support.

I would go for XP pro, and get rid of ME asap

For xp tweaking go to www.tweakxp.com,

and to remove MSN messenger from xp see

Thats my two cents worth.

i heard there was a easier way to remove messenger, something like finding and editing sichost.inf (i’m not sure) to make it removable from the add/remove programs…
Am i wrong? i’m sure i’ve read it somehwere

Well i dont think it gets much easier than copying a line of text into the run box and pressing enter? :o

nb-

That is where you are wrong as Home does support NTFS…

go for xp pro, i have it myself and is basically the best operating system microsoft have brought out since win 95. Basically it just has more stuff on xp pro than home.

xp pro is best

WinXP Pro!!! Because of everything, it is the best OS, and WinXP Home, is not secure enough…so go for WinXP Pro…!!!
