Windows 7 is a lil more stable, not as system intensive, and just plain better. That being said, if vista does everything you need it to with no problems then theres no absolute need to.

In my opinion Windows 7 is much more colorful and simplified!

I myself have not used Windows Vista.I currently use Windows 7.
I have used friends computers with vista and they are kinda the same, except for all the compatability issues I have heard about.

One thing I have found out is some older software just wont work right with Windows 7, and what I have found is instailing the Vista version on a Win7 os usually works just fine.

Over all, "If its not broken dont fix it"

but.... Windows 7 is nice :)
