    If you mean what I think you do, the difference is that they are two seperate pieces of software.

    Windows XP Professional is an OS, obviously
    Microsoft Plus&#33; Media Center Edition for Windows XP is an enhancement/add-on/whatever you want to call it, for Windows XP

    In other words, Plus is designed to be used with Windows XP, AFAIK regardless of edition (i.e. Home/Professional)

    Put Simply - Install Plus MCE if you want to & don&#39;t worry any more about it

    MCE was originally intended to be installed only by OEM computer sellers on PCs with multimedia features. i.e. the computer comes with a capture card, tv-out, remote control, etc. but i guess MS realized they&#39;d make more money by just selling it as a "Plus" CD.

    personally, i don&#39;t think the MCE programs are all that hot, but to each their own...
