Vista is MORE STABLE THAN XP!!!! Will you people please learn that. **** you people really **** me off with your stupid remarks about how unstable it is. There are far less patches for Vista than XP EVER HAD. Even 6 months after its release.
If you want to blame people for the instability of Vista try blaming Creative, ATi, nVidia and the rest for their crappy driver support. Also blame Apple and other software makers for their crappy and slow development of Vista compatable software.
I have run Vista for so long already and have yet to find more than 3 applicaitons i used on XP that DO NOT work on Vista. Every applicaiton works and i have even found some better replacements for some old applicaitons.
To answer your question Mikee....I would do it. I have a PC that has a 2.6 Celeron with 1GB of RAM and it runs Home PRemuim BETTER than it did XP. Since you only want to use Basic i dont see why not. Better security, better OS. Vista is more stable IF YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT. Other than that XP is a old dog just waiting to die.
