Depends what you want to do. For single machine work "home" is fine. If you want to admin a small network or a domain controller you will need pro.

 

$40 well spent on something else in most cases.

If I'm not mistaken Microsoft will continue updates Win 7 Pro until 2018

That article is a bit misleading. Mainstream support for 7 Home Premium ends in 2015 -- that means no more free support, warranty claims or feature requests. Extended support ends in 2020 -- so Microsoft will still push out updates, hotfixes, and offer paid support.

Hello Guys! Thanks for the recommendations. I couldn't find any NON OEM Versions. But i did find a way to fix my current Trial installation. Thank you for the assistance.
