About M$ Windows 2000/XP ...

Does anyone have an idea on what is best for use at home - Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Home/Professional, etc ?

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using one of these in comparison to the others ?

When is Win2K likely to go out of support ?

How much do the genuine licensed versions of the cost in retail ( any other cheaper basis ) ?

What are the other things to keep in mind when buying Windows OS for home (apart from the fact that there will probably be a requirement to reformat, pay for frequent upgrade, ...) ?

Also, does anyone know how much it costs for a Win2K to WinXP upgrade ? Rather how has does upgrade pricing work worldwide and more so in India.

I'm sure M$.com and Google.com will give me some answers if I dig hard enuf. But I'd like to know if someone already has this information.
