The biennial SMA is also more expensive. XP is mostly about networking,
including remote access.

it will depend on how heavily you use your computer, and for what, if your
going to be editing a lot of stuff, wheeling and dealing on the internet,
programming, music editing, or any other intensive items then I would
upgrade your jaws to the pro edition and run XP Pro, its a bit tougher and
less subject to getting fouled up and freezing up. 
 
if your just doing a facebook and Emails, and some other light items then
downgrade to XP home and don't worry about it. 
 
the big advantage to the pro version of jaws  is it will work with any
version of windows, so later if you advance to a computer with windows 7 on
it, you can get any windows 7, including ultimate the top version of the new
OS. 
 
once the pro jaws is paid for, its yours as long as you stay current.

Hi,

Were it me I would just go to XP home. Unless you need the few extra things
which XP Pro might give you I think it is a horrid waste of money.

Also, what happens when you re-start your computer?

Occasionally Jaws tells me that it is not authorized but a re-start seems to
clear all that nonsense up.

Hi I'm trying to activate Jaws 11 on my home PC, and although it came up
activation successful, when I tried to exit I got a message saying something
like "Jaws is not authorised to run on windows opperating systems, windows
XP or Proffessional, please contact Freedomscientific support for advice".
I did and was told I could iether downgrade my system to windows XP Home
adition, or else upgrade my JAWs to 12, which would work fine with Windows
Profferssional.  The problem is it'd cost me about £300.38.  Does anyone
else use JAWS with Windows XP Proffessional, and if so is it worth the
upgrade?  I don't know whether to just go for the upgrade and pay the extra
money or whether to get a more basic version of XP.  I'd be grateful for any
advice on this before I make a choice.  Many thanks from Lori duncan.
