,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's on-the-box minimum RAM requirement "really isn't
| realistic," according to David Short, an IBM consultant who works
| in its company's Global Services Divison. He says users should
| consider 4GB of RAM if they really want optimum Vista performance.
| With 512MB of RAM, Vista will deliver performance that's
| "sub-XP," he warned.
