What is the cost of Windows XP Pro and Windows XP Home in India ? Thanks in advance.
Depends on OEM/regular, quantity, etc. Check http://www.softmartonline.com/pricelist.htm
Thanks. Difference bw OEM and Regular is not clear. For 1 no qtty, acc to above page, cost is XP = Rs 7119, Home= Rs 4119.
OEM is to be distributed with a new computer only. It is not allowed to be used for upgrading, etc... Only installs on clean harddisk I think...
Regular can be purchased independently of computer...

I think the prices are much lower there.
In fact I bought my OEM from a local shop for Rs.3550/-
Yeah that must be WinXp Home, IMHO going for the Pro version at 3K more might be a much better idea!
Is there any serious disadvantage for Windows XP Home against Windows XP Pro from home use point of view ?
Not for home users... See http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/howtobuy/choosing2.mspx and http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_home_pro.asp for comparison details... Professional edition has better/easier LAN and LAN sharing/security features which may not be as important for Home users...
search the previous posts on which is better in wat aspects.If im not mistaken there was a post on winxp pro VS win xp home
in India...it could even be free... just ask around !
i have been using win xp home licensed for nearly 3 years.
no probs whatsoever and if its on a standalone pc i think you will not feel major performance difference.
paying 3k more for professional version if you do need the extra mullah is not worth IMHO.
it costed me about 4100 for OEM with a new pc then.
My god buying windows XP. What on earth is happening???
they shud jus ask there comp engineer or service guy to give them one since they got the pc from him!!
