Up grade to Lion?

I have a MacBook 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (2007). I have heard that it was not advisable to upgrade to Lion. Is there any truth in this. Should I or should I not upgrade?

If you have 2GB of RAM minimum, you can upgrade to Lion no problem.

I am worried that some of my programs may not work in Lion. Is there a way of finding out before I upgrade?

Apple Menu --> About This Mac --> More Info...

System Profiler will open.

In the left sidebar, near the bottom under "Software", click on "Applications"

The main window will fill with a list of the applications found on your system. Click the "Kind" header to sort by kind. Anything that says "PowerPC" or "Classic" will not work under Lion. Investigate whether the developer has released an upgrade for Lion compatibility.

You can also use a program like AppFresh to help automate this process somewhat.
