>>Is it recommended
With the PIX its more like, if its not broke, don't fix it... Upgrade only if you need the feature set in 7.x.

There are a few changes in 7.x that you might want to go over...

One of the main reasons we upgraded to 7.x was because of the ASDM... its SWEET!

You can't jump directly to 7.1 or 7.2 you first need to upgrade to 7.0 and then forwards...
