I know SE is not certified to run on Windows 7 Home edition, but the vast majority of today home computers are bundled with this edition, so I believe this is the version that most students have installed. So, if SE is not certified to run in this OS, although it may be installed, what are the possible problems they may run into?

We have this doubt because we are working with several schools to adopt SE and we have been asked about this.

I believe the reason that it is not certified for the Home versions is
not because there is a problem, but rather because most, if not all,
commercial users will be running SE on Professional or Enterprise
versions of Windows and it is more about the cost to test vs. the
benefit to the customers (which don't use Home versions...).
