Yup, that's what I heard too. Vista will be the BEST OS to date with advanced features made easy to use for the average consumer. I am definitely getting the Ultimate Edition. It's as good as mine.

Are you talking about vista? Cause people from max pc said you need dx 9.0 or better, 1gb of ram minimum, and a relatively fast cpu. 64bit and 32 bit will be available...

512MB minimum!!! Wow...Isn't XP like 256MB minimum? Going up. In 10 years, we'll have like 10GB minimum for RAM.

I'm sorry. They keep using the same basis for each of their operating systems. Stack more and more fancy garbage ontop of a poor foundation and no matter how secure the stuff onto is, it'll crumble.

Vista stands for five things. Viruses, Infections, Spyware, Trojans, and Adware.

The only operating system I would get (if even that) Is Microsoft Solitude, The whole thing with that is taking NO code from the previous windows.

Vista's primary target is security. There's a lot of new stuff Microsoft's implementing to reduce outside threats. I think it will be pretty stable. The new file system should be so cool to see when released.

which is why we all need to do some pretty serious upgrade when the time comes to use Vista. My specs are useless. Must...build....new...system soon.

-64Bit CPU (I think it's safe to say we all have that)
-PCI-express graphics card with minimum 128MB of onboard RAM
-SATA with Native Command Queing
-Monitor that supports high definition playback

Seems a lot I know. Also, Microsoft plan on releasing 7 flavors of Vista ranging from an "ultra stripped down version" for third world countrys to a full featured "ultimate" edition with all business and multimedia components included.
with those kind of requirements it sounds like running a game on vista will be impossible for the average person so i dont think theyre that high and keep in mind theres probably options to turn off all the fancy graphics so u wont have to have an amazing graphics card just to run it

It probably means that if you have those specs, you will get the most out of Vista (max. performance or efficiency).
