Should I ask? How did you get windows on your computer?

Listen, I don't want to get involved in a legal debate. I know exactly what the License Agreements for every version of Windows is Retail, OEM, and Upgrade and Volume License (the so-called corporate edition).
You are thinking of the Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition
You should use the one that came with your machine. Additionally, there is nothing wrong with XP Home. It has everything a typical user needs.
The mystique of XP Pro is maddening to me....and I am one of those people who actually uses the features of XP Pro. But that's because I need to--so many people with XP Pro would never, ever miss those features because they never use them.
Go with Home, it will be easier anyway since you don't need to wait for the disk...

Ok, so XP Home it is! Any ideas of what I should back up?
Thank you Gerry for your help! I'm very happy that there are people like you who will help others out, in the time of need!
