I'm about to buy a custom built pc - trying to decide between xp home or pro - I don't need the extra networking or security features on pro and the only other important difference seems to be that the home version doesn't have a backup utility. I've read that this can be installed (CD-ROM -> Valueadd -> Backup) but does anyone know if it can be installed from a pre-installed OEM version of xp home, or is it only possible to do from a retail version? And also, is it possible if the company don't supply the actual OEM installation cd?
Do I really need this backup utility? I'm working with a tight budget and obviously Home is cheaper than Pro!
Any help appreciated...
