    Hi,
    Before i buy this version of windows can i ask a few questions just to make sure it can do what i want it to do?

    1.I want to hook the computer up to a router so the other computers in that router can get access to the files on each other.

    2. Are there any performance increases with better versions?

    3. I read that it is about the same level as xp home, would you say that is right? Meaning vista prem would be xp pro?

    To answer your questions, I assume you are talking about Home Premium?
    1 - will be no problem
    2 - There are no performance differences
    3 - would be about right

    XP Pro is more equivalent to Vista Business/Ultimate in terms of functionality.

    Home Basic > Windows XP Home
    Home Premium > Windows XP Media Centre Edition
    Business > Windows XP Pro
    Ultimate > think of this as a mix of Home Premium and Business

    Ultimate is basically a mix of all the versions, so it has the media centre as well as the drive encryption as well as the ability to be part of a corporate network. Unless you specifically need the obscure features like encryption, corporate networks (servers etc., not just plug into a router) etc. then just go HP for home use.
