I would have thought the real issue was overhead. Takes more resources
to run a domain. It also has to be administered. Then you need
to set up clients and servers, etc. More resources than the normal
home user needs or wants to waste. Then there's how.
Plus, there's security issues. Too complex for a stand alone system like
home basic or premium.

You guys are all right! ! ! It's true what M$ is doing, but to take away a
simple thing like mapping a drive and managing a network account, (that
means Windows saving you login and password), things that were easily done
on Windows 95 - Me... I mean come-on!
I understand yes that servers, clients, group policies, active directory,
accounts, permissions..... is a bit too much for your everyday HOME USER,
but yes don't you think they have the right the share a file or two and stay
locked on it the next time you start-up your system?
I know there's some developer out there just hating this very thing and
everthing that M$ is during, that they'll find the tweaks to get around
these issues and will put it out there and that's why I am just asking?
