Hey all, just wondering if anyone uses XP Pro, I'm on Vista right now, and i'm about to downgrade due to my printer/scanner, and some other programs not working right with Vista rolleyes.gif , and I noticed I had recovery cds of XP Home and XP Pro, I never used pro before, If I remember the CD was from the PC my brother bought. ( yup just checked, the key is on the side of the PC he used a few years back )

I checked google, and found nothing really worthwhile with pro over home, plus I read pro was the only one with multi processor support?, yet duel core and quad cores work nice with home, did microsoft bring all the pro features to home in an update or something?.

Just wondering if its worth it... I might install it anyway, just for the novelty of it being " pro " , plus no one I knew had pro, anyone have any insight to whats up with this OS?

Yes, microsoft bring all the pro features to home, Try Microsoft update, If it still not working then you must try buy new CD Driver .
