Ron, where do you think the misperception (a rampant one) that Pro is more
stable comes from? There is no fundamental basis for this to be true.
Any idea what could give rise to this perception?

The name "Pro" and the fact that it cost more than Home is what gives
the unfounded perception that it's better. Wouldn't you rather use a
professional version of Windows? <g>

It is, in the way that any poster relays it to be within their own scope.
If a user needs Pro to fulfill their needs, then within their arena it is
more stable for their work environment and/or purpose(s). Who are we to
question anyway?
