The ISO for Home and Pro are the same. If you have a key (a Win 10 key! A Win 7 or 8.n key won't do!), it will install the right edition without asking. If you skip key entry it will give you the choice as what to install. So, no, you can't accidentally grab a Pro ISO and try to install it on a Home version, because the Pro and the Home ISO are one and the same. Only the key makes the difference.

That is exactly why the stickers are gone, IMHO too. It is rather easy to find XP Pro/Home stickers. Vista stickers happen occasionally. 7 stickers are rare though in residentials dumpsters.

I don't dumpster dive much more these days, it's not worth the effort.

Different case, and applied to cars, we haven't advanced all that much ever since the introduction of crumple zones and the seat belt. Yes, we have ABS and ESP these days, but those are relatively small improvements.

Also keep in mind that if you can drive a car from the 50ties, you can drive one built in 2015, and inversely. Safely.
