ehhh... just where did you get a deal like that??
but pro is a must for most colleges. i used pro for 3 years now i use home cause i don't have a legal copy and *cough* my pro cd keys are running thin *cough cough*. Rather not take the risk on a machine I own
However my college just added a new system that will allow anyone with xp home to connect. I'm sure most colleges will do the same at some point considering all the computers that mommy and daddy buys for their incoming freshman will have home installed on it.
Glad you got pro, now tell me where you got a legal copy for that price.. :-D
