FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

They aren't upping the system requirements.

Windows 8 will use less resources than Windows 7. BTW I actually have the platform preview and it does seem to take up less resources than Windows 7.

Windows 7 used less resources than Windows Vista (Vista used 600mb for dwm.exe (aero), 7 doesn't use anywhere near that much. Also 7 works far better on Dual and Quad Core systems than Vista or XP ever did).

Windows 7 works well on machines from 2005. XP RTM running well on machines from 1995? I don't think so.
