Anyway MS have released their minimum specs for Vista. Lies, Damned Lies and minimum specs. They claim Vista will run on a 800 with 512MB of RAM. Then again they claim XP will run on a 150 or something stupid. They are recommending 1GB of RAM though.
If Symantec have their way we may not see that at all, see http://news.ft.com/cms/s/08252e16-e6c1-11da-a36e-0000779e2340.html
someone tried to tell me that bill gates invented the internet the other day.
He certainly didn't but it seems to me MS like to pretend they have re-invented it.
I installed XP for a mate a while back, and had endless problems with activation, had to do it over the phone (he doesn't have the net) and their system couldn't give us a code, and then the Customer Service guy kept giving us codes that didn't work. The whole thing is downright rediculous, and this paranoia of people bringing the company down by ripping things off is what will eventually kill MS.
