upgrade to xp from 2000 RRS feed

  • Question


    I am running windows 2000 Professional on my home computer. I wish to upgrade to xp. If I am reading the tables correctly here at Microsoft, I must upgrade from 2000 Professional to xp Professional to avoid having to reload everything from scratch. On ebay, they offer a xp Professional, but it says “academic version”.  For just general program running, web surfing, printing and so on. With no business applications and home networking only will the academic version be ok or is there restrictions in the version that the retail version correct for home use?
