I've never used the Remote Desktop Connection on Professional.

Good point!

But I'm sure average Home users won't need that and if they do they can use a program such as VNC.

Yeah, you can put a saddle on a big dog but you can't ride that puppy very hard.

^ Cool - how did you do that - I copied gpedit.msc + snapins and .DLLs and it still doesn't work.

How do you get components like gpedit to work on Home Edition?

You are correct. How many Home users use Multiple CPU machines or have ANY use for those network management tools?
