If you dig deep enough eventually you will always hit the "it's money
related" area. This has nothing to do with MS really. It happens everywhere.
Question is why do you have Windows XP Home? You should have gotten
Windows XP Pro. Home is for computer users who only care to surf the web
and look at pictures. Being that you have installed Cygwin, use Xemacs
and are apparently writing PHP code I'd say you're in the Pro category.
Why do they have Pro and Home? Yes it's about money. Some people don't
care about the features that Pro offers so by offering Home edition they
can offer it at a cheaper price. You, however, want those features but
failed to buy the right OS.
