Windows Microsoft's Nick White blogs about the system requirements for Windows Vista. "We've officially released more detail on the system requirements for Windows Vista. These requirements outline what determines whether a PC is categorized as Windows Vista Capable or Windows Vista Premium Ready." Out of experience I can say these requirements are fairly realistic; the only thing I do not advise is the 512MB for Vista Capable; I'd suggest to up to 1GB no matter what.

This happens every time Microsoft comes out with a new OS, they make everyone upgrade their hardware to use it. I could see people doing this in the past because before Windows XP every consecutive Windows release was a slight improvement offer the last, but still junk over all. Windows XP was finally a really usable and stable operating system, and that's what everyone wanted all along. I am a system builder for my family and friends and I will not be installing Vista on any computer until I absolutely have to. Instead I will continue to install Windows XP (if it ain't broke don't spent tons of money to upgrade) or Linux Mint (Ubuntu) and I've been recommending to everyone to do the same.
