You shouldn't. However, when you do upgrade your machine, vista will run fine on it.


... you are still missing the main point.
The CPU and memory should be used to run -applications- and not the bare OS. (... And I'm not even talking about DRM and friends)
-Even- if I should only spend 1000$ on a Vista compatible hardware, shouldn't -I- be better served by having to spend only 500$ on Linux/XP compatible hardware instead? What exactly am I getting for the additional money? (In terms of actual features)
