Windows Microsoft has released licenses for the Windows Vista operating system that dramatically differ from those for Windows XP in that they limit the number of times that retail editions can be transferred to another device and ban the two least-expensive versions from running in a virtual machine. The new licenses, which were highlighted by the Vista team on its official blog Tuesday, add new restrictions to how and where Windows can be used.

You've got that right. I've got a 600 MHz VIA fanless pc with 256 MB of RAM and it ran Windows XP just fine (until I replaced it with Xandros). I wouldn't even attempt to put Vista on it.

For the most part, Vista is for a new pc only.
