Pro. But why wouldn't u try Linux? It will do everything for u, plus won't spy.
I'm mentally challenged in the computer department. I'm not concerned about being spied on. I'm an insignificant nothing. I've only ever used Windows. Thanks. That's 2 for pro so far.

For music/HT only?
Why bother with the extra (minor) cost and complexity of Pro?
More details to educate yourself about, and it's not like you'll need to manage group policies with it, etc, unless you are a network admin or security manager.
I'm about to buy (nice cases, btw) and am 95% leaning towards Home.
That said, if any of the features are of need for you, why not?

WIth pro you don't have to worry about "what's included".
If you go with Home for less RAM, and less dollars, you could use google remote desktop. handy especially if you already have a google/gmail account.
Either way, plan on at least 8GB or RAM 16GB to be on the safe side.

Win 10 Pro. You may not think you will ever need to use the group policy editor but if you ever do you can access it in Pro but not home. Makes sense to go with Pro, why buy a crippled OS?
