I'm not sure if anything has been said officially, but I'm pretty sure it's going to have similar if not the same requirements as Vista...

I'm just going to wait until Windows 7 hits retail.
Yeah, but I found another way. I found it much easier instead of pming and waiting for reply etc.

I just followed some instructions and I can play the game without running DOSbox. It was pretty short and simple so I just went with it.

Well they are probably hoping that corporations will make the switch to Windows 7 which will push up sales for them. They probably figure a lot of people won't buy it anyway since Vista just came out not too long ago.
