Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y With Snow Leopard finally been given a release date and a price, the comparisons with Windows 7 are starting to pop up all over the place, especially focussing on the price aspect of things. While Apple's move to price Snow Leopard at 29 USD for Leopard owners is a very welcome one, the move doesn't mean that Microsoft is getting a price beating from Apple.

"because it preloads frequently used programs"
What frequently used programs?
Windows 7 was freshly installed and there are no programs loaded or installed or even run.

Whatever Win-7 is doing on your system, I can *guarantee* you that it doesn't require 800 MB to run. I have the RC installed on a few virtual machines in VMWare Fusion on my Macbook. Most are 512 MB and one is only 384 and Win-7 seems to work well enough.
