I did the jump from Vista 64 Home Premium to Win 8 Pro on a desktop. All my stuff mostly worked with few problems--just needed newer versions or drivers for some stuff (free for Win 8 from the mfrs).

I switched because the computer was built in 2007 and many of the newer capabilities I wanted did not exist on that old hardware. You will face the same questions--so think about it. The cheap update to Win 8 is gone.....
