PC Operating Systems

Currently there are two versions of Microsoft Windows XP: one for home use and one for business or professional use. Windows XP Home has reduced security features as these are rarely required for home use, and it cannot, for example, connect a PC to a domain. It is, therefore, essential that the correct version for a particular need is purchased with a new PC although there are now licensing options which allow organisations to upgrade/standardise their computer systems. However, even with these options most computers run with the originally installed operating system and you will need to know how they function.
