Default Operating System

For Maya 4.0:

I am getting a PC which has Windows XP (Home Edition) on it. I have a copy of WIN2k Professional. What I want to know is:

1) Will Windows XP (Home Ed.) suffice?
2) Is it really worth upgrading to XP Pro. or is WIN2K Pro better?

Any advice appreciated,

Cheers.

I'm using XP Pro.... I'm not sure if it matters or not, as I've not used Home edition.

Hmm...If I recall right, XP home edition doesn't support multiprocessor systems. Not sure tho...

Win2K here -> no problems...

xp home will do just fine.... but the only downside is.. no networking... and W2KPro, i heard, is more stable... fewer crashes, lesser hiccups if you are own a slower machine... since you are getting a new one.. i say stick with home
