More about : pro support quad cores yomamafor1 February 12, 2008 1:35:34 PM XP Pro does support multi-cores. However, the OS won't take advantage of multi-core, such as substantially performance boost with additional cores. But again, it looks like Vista also doesn't take full advantage of quad cores...

Just wanted to add: XP Home supports 1 socket. (so that 1 physical CPU can have as many cores that your MB can support) XP Pro supports 2 scockets. (so that would be the older OS to run alike 4X4 or Skulltrail whatever the future holds) Not sure about Vista, however if someone knows, I wouldn't mind finding out without searching MS site with FF.
