Windows This is already a fairly old article, but I'm pretty confident it never made OSNews' front page. In this article, the author proves that Windows XP can be installed, and 'run', on processors with as little as 8MHz. "The target of this project was to find the weakest system where you can run Windows XP. Keep in mind, that Microsoft official requirements are a CPU with 233 MHz an 64 MB of RAM. But that had to be beaten!"

Since Windows XP was released in 2001, it would be a pretty fair test. To test the newest KDE/Gnome, you should rather compare it against Vista.

No he's comparing systems released from roughly within the same time period. These are apples and apples.
