    Can you upgrade from Windows XP Home to Windows XP Professional. Also because I am going to get a laptop and I do not want to spend the extra money getting XP Professional. So I will just XP Home and use this extractor I have and upgrade to it.

    Depends on what kind of Laptop your going to be getting. On my desktop PC (HP) i have the HE and i tried upgrading to PRO using TRshady's verified and it wouldn't work quite right (i couldn't get my resoulution higher then 600x400). I'm sure it was just a drivers problem, but i also ended up losing all the software that my PC came with. All of that trouble basically just to say that i had the PRO version. In my advice, i wouldn't do it. If you do decide to do it... save yourself even more money and tell them to keep all the software that your going to lose anyways, besides you can always DL whatever software you want later on.

    Just buy the Professional upgrade, it allows you to upgrade from Windows from all the way to Win 95 to Home Edition.

    The "professional upgrade" part sounded odd enough lol

    I think I personaly have $10 invested in software. The rest I get given to me or I might make a quick copy while installing for someone ( shhhhhh......) or the nice people of kazaa supply me with what I need... For purely educational or evaluation use only of course!!

    Both or either? they're 2 different things.

    I dunno what this thing you're talking about is but it seems to me at least that the more of this type of thing that gets around, the more "bastardized" these OS's become.
    To the point where you won't ever really know what it is you're running or if it really is a secure OS.

    I'm at the same point, trying to decide whether to install or not... I still use 98SE, its very stable for me, but I want to mess with XP. I bought Windows ME, and a full install 98SE, so after $300 in OS's another $90 wouldn't kill me, but greatly piss me off
