Which Version for You?

Microsoft offers three different versions of Windows XP. Windows XP Home Edition is the version of XP for home and small business users. Windows XP Professional is designed for larger businesses and corporate users, and includes the more robust networking and system administration functions required for that environment. Windows XP 64-Bit Edition is designed for workstation-class applications, such as designing bridges and making professional movies.

note

There's one more version of Windows XP, dubbed Windows Media Center. The Media Center is a separate interface that sits on top of the normal XP interface and makes it easier to play DVDs, listen to CDs, and the like. You can only get Windows Media Center when you buy a new Media Center PC; Microsoft won't let you upgrade your current system to the Media Center version. For more information on Windows XP Media Center, see Absolute Beginner's Guide to Windows XP Media Center, by Steve Kovsky, also published by Que.
