FAQ: Differences between XP Home and XP Pro - Page 2

post #11 of 13
And groups.....

The added ACLs in Pro come from being able to join a domain.

most of the differences between Home and Pro are just extra functions that come into play when Pro joins a domain. <----slight exaggeration

If Pro is a standalone machine or only on a peer to peer network then there is no real advantage in the ACLs......don't get me wrong....I'm not arguing, just clarifying.

For those that dont know...ACLs are Access Control Lists. These determine access rights to data and administration objects for users and groups. (in a nutshell)

from what I can tell the only difference is the -mini parameter that enables XP Pro to use mini-setup whereas Home only supports Windows Welcome......if the -mini is not specified then Pro will also run in Windows Welcome.

if there are other differences you know about please let me know

Thread Starter 
WHen it comes to deploying thousands of machines, the ability to configure the sysprep.inf to bypass mini-setup and autoconfigure many details is HUGE.

Then again, I work in the OEM/ODM/PCB/OPK/manufacturing space - so I have hit this wall before

You can take advantage of most of the needed settings for OEM image contruction (I use OEM loosely here - system builder, whatever) that you need for home - drivers, apps, auditing, etc. - but for end user deployment (or automated bare metal deployment) being able to get around mini-setup (aka Windows Welcome) can be quite an issue.
