My hardware is too old to support XP......i dont even think of VISTA as of now......until i buy a new PC.Some say XP Home is too insecure.....plus i havent installed SP2 also....

vista delayed till the end of 2006. and u would definitely need a new computer to run it properly.

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.
