Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer talked with eWeek Senior Editor Peter Galli at the show about these upcoming products.

requiring a 3Ghz cpu, 512MB, and 64MB GPU is performance?

XP runs just fine on a 600Mhz PIII with 256MB.


For the xxxxxxxth time-- in Windows Vista, all the eye-candy can be turned off to turn it into an XP-like experience, which does NOT require the specs as you listed.

And after you've turned off all the eye-candy and turned the OS into an XP-like experience, what are you left with? Windows XP? What were the cool features Microsoft was doing the past six years? I don't count high system requirements as one of them.

And, after xxxxxxx times, will someone be so kind and
specify what are the requirements for Vista in "compatibility" mode ?

I've heard that they are not "so high". How "high" they are actualy ?
