Windows Vista Minimum System Requirements

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Over at Microsoft, they have posted the minimum requirements for Windows Vista. Of particular note, users will need a minimum of 512MB of RAM which is just obscene. When you compare this to the minimum requirements of Linux systems, you really can see the difference in minimilistic programming and bloatware releases that don't offer much in terms of innovation. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Windows users mainly these days, but requiring 512 MB of RAM makes me believe that there isn't a strong enough emphasis being placed upon programmers at MSFT to minimize the amount of resources needed to provide a fully functioning OS.
