It takes up a significant amount less than XP, right? From what I've been reading online, that's what it seems like.
"Another crucial improvement for Windows 7 over Windows Vista is that 7 will run on a range of machines, from low-specification netbooks to high-powered desktops. On our mid-range Studio Hybrid, 7 was certainly more impressive than Vista, although there were the bugs that are acceptable in a test beta version, especially to do with the anti-virus programmes that are currently still very specific to Vista.
Micorosoft say that the operating system will be happy on, for instance, an Asus EeePC. Given that the EeePC sometimes struggles to run its cut-down version of Linux, that’s quite some claim, and I’d be eager to see how true it really is. "
That's quite a statement.

dont talk shit about stuff you dont know. Vista did have problems, but hell, it was a good update.
7 will be amazing. After Vista received the service pack 1 update, it was a decent operating system. I do hope we get better security options with Vista.
