Windows 7 Pro only has the advantage of joining a domain and allowing over 16GB of RAM, in a nutshell. If you want to spend $135 for no reason, be my guest.

Keep in mind that an OEM version of Win 7 Pro 64-bit sells for under $120 - One advantage of Win 7 Pro is that it had Virtual Machine XP-Mode for older Win XP programs. If you are not using this feature (I do) then there is no big advantage.

And I must mention that upgrading to Windows 8 Pro (or Win 8.1 Pro) costs about $80.

On my Win 8.1 computer I installed "Classic Shell" and now it looks exactly like Windows 7, 'Start' button. Menu, and all. One click and I am in Win 8 if desired. Win 8 is the way things are going.

Nope. Not worth it unless you have greater than 16 GB RAM. XP mode is useless now since Microsoft is ending support for Windows XP. You're fine on what you already have.

On XP-Mode the browser is de-activated and this prevents malware from getting in.

Besides, I have a dedicated Win XP desktop on which the Ethernet cable is disconnected. It runs my older programs perfectly. I don't need XP updates going forward.

In addition to this, win 7 pro also allows remote desktop sessions.

Which PCs can I connect to using Remote Desktop Connection?

You can use a PC running any edition of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, or a PC running Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, or Windows RT 8.1 to initiate a connection. But the remote PC must be running one of these Windows operating systems:

Windows 8.1 Pro

Windows 8.1 Enterprise

Windows 8 Enterprise

Windows 8 Pro

Windows 7 Professional

Windows 7 Enterprise

Windows 7 Ultimate

Windows Vista Business

Windows Vista Ultimate

Windows Vista Enterprise

Windows XP Professiona
