i've been running vista for about 7 months and havent had to re-install once due to an error.
I've only found 2 things so far that vista doesn't like. Speedbit internet optimizer (useless anyhow)
and download accellerator plus. kinda sucks cause its a great program imo. all the other ones irritate the **** outta me. I can still use it, it just crashes on occasion. only takes 10 seconds to boot up again ;p.
anyhow i'd probably grab the extra ram and not bother with the downgrade. but you can do both if you want, youll notice much better performance.
