Its more a question do I spend the money on an upgrade program for home, or do I wait a little while and buy a new computer with 7 on it.

Of course, the next question I guess I should ask is how long will 7 be supported and should I go straight to 8?
You're going to have a harder time getting 7, the longer you wait, since MS wants everyone on 8 now. If you have a computer old enough to still be running XP you are likely due for a full system upgrade anyway.

Mainstream support for Windows 7 ends next January. Extended support ends in January of 2020, so patches will continue to be produced for a long while yet.

The current version is 8.1 which is supposedly an improvement over most of what people hated about 8.
Not affiliated with those other white knights. I'm the good kind.
I has a blag.
