Remember when he said you would never need more then 640 K of memory?
Well, he's finally kept his promise. Win XP requires only the following:
Windows XP requires a whopping 128 K of memory and a 300 MHz processor,
though the system really breathes with 256 K of memory and processors of
500 MHz or more.

know the news never get's it wrong!
