decision should be made based off hardware specs

For home or small business use it probably won't make a difference.

I believe the only real difference for home or small business users is not being able to RDP into it. Once you get to bigger business it's missing some important features like being able to add it to a domain.

You are missing the Pro in your question  :P

The major differences for (somewhat) plain people are that Windows Home doesn't have RDP (server, so you cannot log in to it with RDP), no Group Policy manager (although you can usually set them all in the registry if you want), Windows Pro has a defer updates option to delay Windows Updates from being installed right when it comes out, Bitlocker encryption support, and the Windows Hyper-V hypervisor.

Although not completely true, since RDP is ליידער (...) something that a lot of novices use or want to use.

Non-business users can use teamviewer for free. Or you can always upgrade to pro later..

That's of course until TeamViewer blocks them for suspected commercial use..., also they do not want it to be on screen/speaker/etc of the local PC while they are working. So there is still reasons why people prefer RDP. But I digress...

Right but is it worth the extra cost for someone who may never use it? That was my point. I've used both and RDP is definitely a better experience if you're going to use it.

You can use anydesk.  Just as good as tram viewer.  Actually better because u can toggle screens
