Sure. But you need to upgrade to 10.6.7 (at least) first.

Much of the changes in the recent Os upgrades are under the hood, so to speak. The interface does not change that much.
Lion brings several changes that makes life easier on the Mac. One of my favorite changes is how they have changed Mail. It takes a day or two to get used to it but after that it's a dream and one wonders how one could live without it before.

I would - as long as you are ready for it.  There are numerous changes....some under the hood (so to speak) and some out in the open.  

Mail is one application.  iCal, Contacts, etc.  Launchpad (for the iPad/iPhone type of icons is another).  Scrolling is 'backwards' - matches the ipad scroll.

My advice, is if you can get your hands on a Lion install, install it to a bootcamp partition and test it out.  But, in my opinion, if you upgrade, and then use if for a few days, as mentioned, you won't want to go back.

Do you use any Rosetta applications?  If you do, then hold off until they release updates.

I personally updated to LION and could not stand the user interface and bugs I encountered.  I would hold off to be honest until they polish it out.
