    Windows XP Pro Corp with Service Pack 2
    Windows XP Pro OEM with Service Pack 2
    Windows XP Pro Retail with Service Pack 2

    Difference is that the Retail will have support from MS tech support. OEM won't. And Corp will not have to be activated.

    Windows XP Media Center 2005 with Service Pack 2
    Its the media center.

    Home... stay away.

    Ummmm. The OEM versions of Windows to provide support from MS, although they suggest you get support through your reseller first.

    I only know this because we are a reseller.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Oh... ok.

    The OEM is cheaper and doesn't come with the manuals, etc.

    How about Windows XP Tablet Edition? I work with tablet pc's at my office. It has a really nice built in On Screen Keyboard and it has handwriting recognition. It works on a touch screen on a car computer perfectly as I have tested with it first hand. It also has very nice speech recognition built in as well.

    I don't know the tablet PC version. Looks nice to have that keyboard, like on a PPC

    Any windows with SP2 slipstreamed will be faster than original pro.
