I'm happy with Home Basic,it suits me just fine.I seem to avoid some of the problems others have,including two family members, with Home Premium.
I would need more ram and a better video card to get the most from an upgrade.Not worth the $$$,imo.

Lucky for me I found WinCustomize,I've got that covered.
