Re: Jaws version/edition

Well, if only business people used Win XP Pro, I could at least imagine 
their rationale being reasonable.  But the fact is that anyone might choose 
to run XP Pro for some reason or other, having nothing in particular to do 
with being a business.

It just gets stranger.

I've been told by FS people that the reason for the cost difference is that
Microsoft charges FS more to
use it for business.  So if you use XP Professional with Jaws, your license
will cost more even though it is the same thing.  Crazy!
