AFAIK, the problem was, that they didn't get the third mouse button to 
work for XP emulation in Home Premium because of the missing Active 
Directory synchronization boost. We are lucky, they decided to force the 
user needing the XP compatibility layer to upgrade to Professional 
instead of downgrading to a one button APPLE mouse.
