Windows Microsft has made hard statements about perfomance improvements in Longhorn. They claim that applications will load 15% faster than in XP, while boot time is decreased by 50%. They also claimed that Longhorn will be able to wake up from sleep in 2 seconds. Users should also expect half as many reboots during patching. Time to dust of those trustworthy stopwatches.

3GHz CPUs are not required for Longhorn. ACPI BIOSes (no APM) will be a likely requirement however (not a big deal these days). At the lowest end, Longhorn will support some classes of Pentium III/K6-2 on notebook computers.

Correction on the K6-2 Mobile. Not supported. The Mobile P3 w/ Speedstep is supported.
