    I'm finally making the move from dial-up to DSL. A friend of mine though claims that Windows XP Home Edition has a bandwidth cap of about 250 kpbs. (I think that was the number. He doesn't remember anymore.) He claims the only way to remove the cap is to buy Windows XP Professional. Of course, he doesn't have the OS, has only heard about this on BBSes and claims it's true. I of course don't believe, but would like to prove him wrong. I do know that at my dad's company small office is running DSL at 10 MBPS. What do you guys know about this?

    It's total BS. I get 400kbytes/s out of my XP Home Edition laptop on my cable connection.

    Broadband bandwidth caps are determined by the ISP, not the operating system.
