Hi, you've all probably discussed this but I've missed those so here I am. (More ppl have XPerience with XP now anyway :p )

Anyway, i'm on 2K, should I buy XP? I know XP has a few more features than 2K and there's all the eye candy. Also know that XP takes up more resources. BTW, just how much? I keep hearing it takes up more than 2K despite the similarities between the 2 OS's.

My sys. specs are: *points are sig*

Also, just what does the Pro version have that the Home version doesn't?

What's a good price to get the OS? ....OK, when I say good, I say cheapest. Seen some upgrades (which can be used for a clean install) for around £70 on ebay. Does it get any better?

Thanks for reading...if you read it. I'll reply asap.

With a P3 500mhz you are at the absolute bottom limit for Xp to work, despite M$ hype. it really needs a minimum processor speed of about 800 otherwise it can be like wading through treacle

I personally wouldn't upgrade with your specs.

W2K will do almost anything XP will do

2K has better security than Xp home
the only real advantage for you would be if you wanted to upgrade graphics cards etc, XP would have better inbuilt support for later cards
