If you can get yourself another 1GB of RAM, I'd go for it. :)

You can install it on 1GB of RAM, and it'll run but I'd do what Andy suggested and get more RAM

In that case unless your programming requires testing on Vista, I'd stick with XP. Vista won't offer any improvements in performance for browsing or gaming, unless your games work much much better with DX10. The memory will be the main thing holding you back if you upgrade. 1GB is the bare minimum you should run Vista on.
