The media centre edition is XP pro with the media part tagged on so i believe. If your going to want to watch live TV etc through a TV card then may well be worth it.

For general every day use thou XP home will be fine you only really need pro if your going to be networking in a serious way and you need the extra security features heres a comapre of home vs pro click here

I use Pro on both my office desktop and laptop, because I make use of its extra abilities, but not everyone would.

I have also been known to use Suse 9.2 from time to time, so don't rule that (or an equivalent) out.

Xp Pro x64 Edition is not worth the added hassle at this stage; something that is reflected in its very modest uptake.
