Question Upgrading to Windows vista

I currently have Windows XP and I am thinking of getting a new computer. Is it a good idea to upgrade from Windows XP SP2 to Windows Vista Ultimate?

It depends what you use your computer for and what type of hardware you have. List your system specifications and tell use what you are using the computer for.

Depends what you want to use it for, if its for a company you work with try Vista Buisness, if it is for you to use try Vista home premium or Vista ultimate.
