Beginners Guides: Installing Windows XP - Beginners Guides: Installing Windows XP
Tue, July 22 2003 | 3:41PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Like Windows 9x/Me machines, Windows XP Home computers cannot become members of a Windows Domain. This severely limits XP Home's usefulness in professional environments, at least larger ones, since it cannot be easily administrated centrally. It's completely irrelevant to the average home user though. WinXP Home lacks the Remote desktop feature found in WinXP Pro, which enables a single user to remotely connect to the WinXP Pro machine across a network or the Internet using client software that can be installed on just about any Operating system. WinXP Home supports only a single processor, compared to WinXP Pro's support for up to two. WinXP Home does not have the ability to encrypt files. WinXP Home does not have the capability to restrict access to specific files, programs and resources on a per-user basis. An administrator of an WinXP Professional computer can specify exactly which files and folders each user has access to, a level of control which is not possible in WinXP home edition. WinXP Home does not include Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS) as Professional does, and thus cannot be used to publish web pages without a third party program. WinXP home does not support multiple monitors without third-party software.
