Surely those requirements for Longhorn cant be right...
What the hell is Mr Gates making thats gonna need a 6Ghz processor, 2gigs of ram and a TB of storage? It better offer a GUI similar to the one in Minority Report or even the Matrix if those requirements are actually confirmed by M$.
|Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Professional
• PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
• 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
• 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
• Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
• CD-ROM or DVD drive
• Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device
So, if we assume the current ratios of requirements to what people had when XP came out is the same for Longhorn, then when its released, the average system will be along the lines of 20Ghz processors, 60TB hard drives and 8GB of RAM?!?
