Probably because We use workgroups here...
Windows XP Home Edition-based computers always have Simple File Sharing
Windows XP Professional-based computers that are joined to a workgroup
have the Simple File Sharing UI enabled by default.
Windows XP Professional-based computers that are joined to a domain use
only the classic file sharing and security interface
Technology is a word that describes something that doesn't work yet.
