Dell, through some paperwork problem accidentally shipped me Windows 8 Home instead of Windows 8 Pro. They admitted that. They also said that I would be reimbursed if I paid Microsoft the $40.00 for the upgrade. On the surface I see no reason why, if I am going to keep Windows 8, that I should not go for the  upgrade. If I am paying Microsoft for the upgrade I am assuming that they will stand behind it fully. Either Dell or Microsoft probably will. Any reason for me not to buy the upgrade?

None at all. On the contrary, once you have the pro version, you would also be entitled for a free upgrade to Windows 7 Pro, which in my opinion is the better OS when compared to Windows 8. If you don't need the hyper-V option that you get with Windows 8, I'd  get the Windows 7 upgrade, after you have updated to windows 8 pro...

I don't see any good reason not to buy the upgrade. In fact I already bought one for myself.
