    Xp Home works quite well for lot's of people. Advanced users should go for MCE/Pro.

    It's OEM copy, so you need to purchase it with new PC.

    Any versions of Windows in the retail channel are full versions.

    Naw, OEM just means his m8 can't call M$ for tech support. Whoever builds the PC the OEM key is used on is responsible for software support.

    I'm fairly sure that's at least one of the differences. I buy OEM all the time b/c I've never had to call ms (except to activate) for tech support
