Can a windows home edition be used in a commercial environment?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t think there are any restrictions, but there are features that are not in the home edition, that you may need in a commercial environment. There is a comparison table for Vista, on the Microsoft site http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-compare.aspx

The main thing missing from home edition, that you will probably need, is the ability to join a domain, which is only in Business and ultimate according to that page.

I guess you can look there, and if Home has all the features you need, then save some money and buy that (but if you really want to save money, use Ubuntu and forget Windows).

I hope that helps.

    You can not use windows home edition with a business environment. Because you can not join it to any domain. If you want to more computer help and support, then please approach at: http://www.iyogi.net
