Ok whats up with it,
I have heard not much about it, I have installed it and it is a fair bit different like of course the media center but with some looking around in the system info it says Windows Xp Professional
But EVERYWHERE else it says Windows Xp MCE, Or Media Center Edition
And the theme is new but its not a hacked uxTheme.dll so i dont know it real since it on microsofts website, but what is really new, and windows update also has Windows MCE update that ive never seen such as Remote Control Database update and Set Top Box compatibility upgrade and some more - And of course some new security updates any one else using it or used it or know about it

It is a custom XP version that focuses on multimedia. You can do the same things with normal XP.

Which is it more related to Xp Pro or Home

XP home and pro are very related already....

if XP MCE supports multi-physical CPUs (not logical, but physical) then its more like pro
