Vista got bad name in early days after its release because of unavailability of software, compatibility issue, ect., but now most of these issues have resolved and of course it's much better than XP (بد اچھا بدنام برا)

Be careful if you upgrade from XP though. A clean install (format, install from scratch) would be much better, if you can do that.

@ ShoukaT

If you have an open mind and welcome changes then I shall highly recommend you Windows Vista 64-bit, as your computer specs will allow you to take full advantage of it. For 64-bit, if you can then increase your computer's RAM to at least 4GB.

Many people are afraid of change. It's not new. I remember, when people were saying same things to previous version of Windows.

* Windows 98 (upgrading from Windows 95); People used to say that it's same, nothing is new. Because at first glance it was almost same. Eventually, it almost replaces Windows 95.

* Windows 98 SE. People used to say this is just a trick by Microsoft to sell more copies of Windows 98. Eventually, everybody was recommending to use Windows 98 SE rather than Windows 98.

* Windows 2000. People were angry with Microsoft because it changed many things of their beloved Windows NT 4.

* Windows XP. Oh so notorious. If you read articles and reviews of Windows XP when Windows XP was released. Everybody was cursing Microsoft for ruining Windows NT by bloating it with crippled Windows ME code (from looks to System Restore). Everybody was saying Windows 98 SE is for games. People predicted that no gamer will upgrade to Windows XP because it can't play games. But in the end everyone proven wrong and people adopted to Windows XP.

* Windows Vista. Same as previous Windows, people are scared from change. It's natural for human beings to be scare of change. But according to year old surveys more than 30+% users of Windows have or going to upgrade to Windows Vista.

If you plan to use to Windows Vista. I shall highly recommend you to have a clean install, meaning; format and install. Save all of your current data to some other partition, or harddisk or Flash disk (USB). Gather (download) all drivers (especially display and audio) for Vista before installing it.

Remember, to give yourself some time to adjust yourself to change. Use it at least for one to two months before thinking to back to Windows XP. I know from my own experience and by observing other people that when people get used to of easiness of Vista (within a month or two), most of people don't go back to XP.

Update us with your eXPerience of colors of Vista. ;)

^^

the actual windows folder of vista consume around 7.x GB and the other stuff like hiberfile and page file take around 4 GB so so u can run vista without a hitch on ur 32 GB partition
