    What's the main differences between xp and pro, I've only got access to the home version atm so is it gonna be a problem studying for 70-270?

    I would say you need Pro for the 70-270 course. Pro was desgined for busniess use and networking in general, home isn't.
    You can get Pro for around £80, try e-bay...

    Home is a bit like buying a car with no steering wheel.
    Easy to use for a beginner but a nightmare when you want to go round corners.
    270 focuses on Pro, so it makes sense to have the product in front of you.

    XP home has certain features disabled, from memory they all concern it's capability on a network.

    I do believe by altering some settings in the registry of an XP home machine you can enable these features thus giving you an XP Pro machine.

    Please dont attempt this if your not familiar with the registry.

    Home doesn't offer the file permissions Pro does and can't connect to a domain either...
