xp home seems to be faster then the pro. The number of processes are less in home compared to pro versions. But advisable is a ntfs partition.

I use Xp pro cuz its faster and it supports IIS server without which you cant do .NET.

As speed is quite essential, I would recommend Windows 2000. It has got most of what Windows XP has, except for a fancy GUI and very few additional features.
