What sort of madness is this? Professional man, why opt for less features and control?
There is nothing to think about here. If anything, I would only install the Pro edition to have the Group Policy Editor. Without it, it's really difficult to tame this OS.
I run Pro, and have never changed anything using Group Policy Editor. What would you want to change? So really it is your choice.
I often run to the Loo do if it was my choice I would go with the Poo version
Ps just being silly go for Pro ofcourse
Trying to decide between a free 1980 Ford Pinto and a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. sure the Cadillac is FAST, but Nothing Explodes line a Pinto when hit from the rear.

Pro also has extras like Bitlocker and Hyper-V. I don't have any plans to upgrade My Win 8.1 Core laptop since the GPUs aren't DX12 capable and even If they were I have a extra drive running Win 10 Home with the Digital License, But I'd upgrade to Win 10 Pro instead of Home If I ever decide to run Win 10.
Well if you choose Home then your limited to only 128GB of ram. Pro supports up to 2TB.
So why be crippled, choose Pro.
Here is what I disable using Group Policy Editor:
1- Do not show "new application installed" pop-up when installing a new program
2- Prevent computer from connecting to a homegroup (no disabling the service entirely is not advisable as it makes my computer sometimes not appear on the network, thus thus rule is awesome as it lets me forget about Homegroup yet not mess up my network connectivity)
3- Disable Windows Defender
4- Disable "preserve zone info in attachments" so that files downloaded from the internet are not blocked by default
5- Disable System Restore
6- Disable Windows Error Reporting
7- Disable Taskbar Thumbnail Previews
Gentlemen (hello ladies, if you are lurking around),
I reviewed your answers, which still don't answer my most crucial concerns.
2 possible pros for the Home Edition:
Battery life is important. Disk space can be imporant on those modern, cheap, small machines, such as stick PCs and 'cloudbooks,' some SSDs. You and I can never know on what hardware I might want to install the OS some time later.
1 possible pro for the Pro Edition:
I've already replied to your question.
There is NO POINT to use the home version, less control, less features, same (if not more) resources occupied.
Frankly seem like you have already your idea (a wrong idea) and you are just looking for someone that confirms it rather than a good answer.
He expects a different edition of the same OS to give him better battery life! LOL
Really? Where? I can't see it. I reviewed all 13 posts so far in this thread, and this was your first.
By the Home requiring same or more resources, do you mean battery life on a laptop or disk space? It's interesting though! It was just kind of unintuitive for me, but whatever.
No. It was truly meant to be an open ended question. If Professional requires less resources either in battery life or disk space, I can accept that, I can roll with that.
You replied this to T-S' post who claimed exactly that. Or something like that. Makes sense, if in one edition more processes are running, right?
Indeed it was another thread where you asked the exact same thing.
Resources, in general. Same storage space same RAM and CPU used.
Actually the less demanding version as today is Server 2016, because it comes with less services installed, no metro apps, has a less invasive telemetry, has the crappy defender uninstallable by the server manager and so on. But it takes more disk space because the optional server features. Then there is the Enterprise S/LTSB , then pro and home that are roughly to the same level
Whatever. Deploying each version you want to compare on a native VHD is matter of 5 minutes per installation, just do it and look at the results by yourself
Putting it all together, I'm now very intrigued: what do you mean by 10 Home uses more resources if it uses the same CPU, RAM, and disk space?
Well, is Server 2016 accessible in a similarly easy fashion like Home or Pro? I don't know about this. If Enterprise were available (last time I checked, it was not), I would choose that in a heartbeat, for the Windows on the Go USB option.
I had to Google this acronym, it is not known by average people, but if you imply trying Windows 10 as a virtual machine, no, I don't have the resources for that at hand now (RAM, CPU, big, fast SSD). Later (read: well after July 29th) will. Thanks for the tips!
Resource usage, along with battery life, etc., etc. is quite likely the same between Home and Pro. However, with Group Policy Editor being available in Pro, you have the control in your hands to make it even more efficient and also to limit privacy related concerns. Pro is the only answer in the debate between Home and Pro. You can tame that beast with Pro much easier and to your individual liking.

Long story short, I'd truly appreciate any info on Windows 10 server, what is it, how it differs from Windows 10 desktop, how Daz users can or cannot upgrade, is it lightweight software, as per my wishlist in post #1? Thank you!
