    What's the substanial difference between the two?

    Microsoft® Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005

    and

    Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional with Service Pack 2

    I mean outside of the bells and whistles the Media Center Edition has, I can't think of anything else.

    I've got MCE on my laptop... As far as I can see, the only difference is the Media Center app (it will sit in your sys tray). If you're going to be watching or recording video (HDTV and the like), it's pretty nice... But, I hear that MythTV is pretty similar...
