Look at this Microsoft website. After you see the most humorous ad ever at the top of the web site notice what it says on the top right side next to the ad. Here is what it says: Basically what Microsoft is saying is that Windows XP Home Edition has a deceiving appearance. The company doesn't have to put itself down to sell Windows XP Professional but it is choosing to. Talk about an unprofessional way to sell a product with professional in the name. (Well, honestly the only thing professional about Windows XP Professional is the professional in the name.) Why does Microsoft even sell a rundown version of their operating system? I mean just think about it. Apple doesn't sell two versions of OS X. Apple only offers the best; they don't keep it from people like Microsoft does.
