Not only security but also stability .

Moreover, XP is much older and out of date. In its time it was a great OS, but Windows 7 is better than it in almost all respects.

That's the technological advancement.

You don't "need" to do anything. But aside from security and stability, newer hardware is designed for Windows 7. Newer OSes will take advantage of the hardware in better ways.

windows 7 home premium 64 bit

There are many things that are better about windows 7, and one of those is compatibility. many programs now are only compatible with windows 7. Also it has an improved UI and is easier to use for most people. Windows 7 does have slightly improved security. Also it is compatible with the new hardware like massive hard drives and it can be better for gaming, directx11, nvidia physx, and OpenGL run better on windows seven becasue that is the system they were made for

Because it is an XPired OS which runs like a Model T compared to a Win7 Lexus.

All else equal, any reason to not get Win7 Pro?
I qualify for the 30$ student upgrade of Vista to 7. I noticed that it's 30$ regardless of whether or not I get the Home Premium version or the Professional version. I wanted to know if there's any downside to getting Professional? Does it take up more HD space? Will it take up more resources?...
