Windows 11 Pro or Home?

PostSat Apr 06, 2024 11:27 am

Hello fellow Hauptwerkians......I am about to purchase a new PC laptop with the specs needed for most sample sets. My question is this: Should I have it equipped with Windows 11 PRO, or HOME edition?

Thank you!

I've used Home for Windows 10 and 11 with HW and had no problems other than that it's been hard to find some system settings. That may be merely Windows 10 and 11 hiding stuff more than Windows 7 (which was Pro), instead of a Home vs Pro difference.

I also use Home with no problems (on a high-end new build a few months ago). One difference is that Home supports 128GB RAM, probably as much as you may want, which I have installed. Pro supports more.
