To clarify:
Regardless of whether you have WindowsXP Home or WindowsXP Pro, if you bought the copy retail or OEM, you have to activate. If you have a corporate copy of WindowsXP Pro, you do not have to activate. (I'm not currently aware of any corporate copies of WinXP Home).

There's a keygen out that can gen 4-5 keys for one night's work. You can phone it in and it works. Sounds like a pretty big flaw on M$'s part.
