Then how come people are running their quad cores on Vista Home and XP Home?

That is fine as practical experience will always be better than raw data tables.

Even though this relates to Quad Cores and XP Home Edition, I would like to hope that would be true of Vista Home, even the crippled Vista Home Basic version.

However, with XP Pro and no intention of a Vista upgrade and probably no quad core processor either, it doesn't even effect me.

I just wanted to get this whole multi core thing cleared up for others that may be reading this thread ...
