I think so...

It's been quite a while since my last experience with vista but from what I remember everything was easier/smoother with windows 7

so if I were you I'd take the time for sure

The 32bit key works fine on a 64bit disc . The only thing that matters on the keys is what version of Windows it is. 32bit or 64bit doesn't matter. So grab a 64bit disc from a friend, use your 32bit key....and have fun .

I'd suggest to go with 7. From my experience, it is much smoother and faster than Vista, not to mention more user friendly. Even better if you got it for free.

Yes, but you can use all 4 gigs of your RAM with 32 bit.
