But to run Windows Vista (Vista) as smooth as it is to be, you must make sure that your computer is ready for Vista. Vista need, urm… well…sort of high system performance. If you are not sure whether your computer system is ready for Vista or not, take your PC to Vista Readiness test.
Vista Readiness will check your system and see if your current system specifications are compatible with Vista or not. It will perform 7 tests and you must run the tests in Microsoft Internet Explorer. This is because, Vista Readiness will run ActiveX to gather all the informations needed for the tests.
After that, Vista Readiness will display the result. There will be two categories, Minimum Requirements and Recommended. For Minimum Requirements, it is the basic specifications needed to run Windows Vista Basic. But Vista Readiness not recommend you to upgrade your current Windows to Windows Vista unless your system passed the Recommended specifications.
Btw there is another tool to check your system, Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor. Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor is a 32-bit application that will help you to determine if your Windows XP-based PC can run Windows Vista. Download the application and run Upgrade Advisor.
But I have a question to ask, if your computer is ready for Vista upgrade, will you upgrade it? [tags]windows, microsoft, windows vista, vista, software[/tags]
