Upgrading to windows Vista

Many of my friends ask me whether to upgrade to vista or not. Many of them use windows Xp currently and they were very eager to try Vista.

You must at least have 512 MB of RAM (Random access memory).If you do not have the requirements as for windows vista your computer will be slow.
