It's not completed yet so It's not set in stone, Its all speculation. I know there will be 32bit and 64 bit versions.
I HEAR its not going to be such a resoure hog as XP but who knows

But you know what Vista stands for?
Just more Viruses, Infections, Spyware, Trojans, and Adware. =P

Well ... there definately will be a 32 bit and 64 bit system for Windows Vista, they wouldn't run the riskof only creating a 64 bit version of Windows Vista ... anyhow, so far, i have heard of any system requirements for Vista ...
I've heard the joke that Vista stands for Viruses, Infections, Spyware, Trojans and Adware, always provides a good chuckle

Im running a copy of Vista on one of my machines. Not an amazing machine, no way near 2gb mem. Vista is running, not rapidly, but fast enough.

You can download it if you've paid for a stupidly expensive MSDN subscription, but there's also leaked versions on P2P networks, but it's usually older Longhorn builds you'll find there.

Windows Vista doesn't need 2Gb.

It needs at least 5GB+ To install
