I am finally going to upgrade from 98 to XP. Is there any advantages to XP Professional Edition over Home Edition. I would appreciate any advice anyone could give me.

Unless you're logging on to big networks, there are not much features which will not be satisfied by Windows XP Home Edition. I have both and theres nothing i can do on Pro, that i can't do on Home.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
