    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/-

    Before a PC of course!!!
    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 ?

    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.
