    Oracle 9i Home Edition and Windows XP

    I am about to buy a computer with Windows XP Home Edition and I want to load Oracle 9i Home Edition on there. Does anyone know if there are any issues with that? Someone told me that I should pay the extra $200 to buy the XP Professional Edition. Thanks.

    AFAIK, Oracle certification is only for XP prof - and I heard howls of anguish from people who have tried and failed using XP home. Perhaps someone out there knows how . . . .

    tou need xp prof, but microsoft were recently doing a rebate on the upgrade -- $75 i believe if you bought a machine with xp home edition and an upgrade to prof at the same time.

    I hate XP -

    I went for this XP Home edition: Started the problems that I never had on my w2k.
    I have a bios problem every now and then. There are one or the other error croping up always.In no time you feel that you want to go back to WinNT or 2000 ( I am degrading the OS to 2000 some time next week). Also, Oracle is not supported for XP Home edition. Your best bet would be xp-pro or win 2000 (Unless MS decides to do away with 2000).

    Thanks for your help. It looks like Windows XP Professional.
