1.2GB of memory? That's disgusting, XP Pro with all the bells and whistles and my filemanager running with firefox open and antivirus etc etc, is using 590MB of RAM here.

 

Hell my PEAK usage was under 800MB, and that was after running MAME!

I have 4gb of ram... it really isn't that big of a deal for me. ^^

It does seem a bit much. Typically XP uses 400MB, and when I used Vista Ultimate it was more like 700MB. I read that MS said the minimum requirements were the same as Vista, ie. 1GHz processor/1 GB RAM/15GB HDD space.

 

I'm due to get a new computer soon and I thought 2GB would have been ok, but I think I'll go with 4GB now to be safe. I guess I'm too used to this slimline, lightweight OS. Looks like I'll just have to put up with the bloat like everyone else :naughty:

I installed it to my MAME cabinet & it works fast.

 

Keeps saying my copy isn't genuine every minute too.

That's odd. Which key did you use?

 

The first one for 32-bit
