It's a good, stable release. I'd still say it's a pretty big memory hog, 500mb RAM used at least without any programs open.Because people don't have more than 1GB of RAM installed into their computers.
Yeah like five years ago.
The majority of most new computers at a moderate price will have at least 3gigs of ram and will have a duo/quad core processor as well. When I was looking for my new one six months ago, I didn't come across any computers with less than 3gb of ram, just laptops. Windows 7 is waaaaay more stable than Vista, more fluid and I dunno, prettier and easier to use. I'm running it on a x4 64 processor with 8gigs of ram (at about £30/$60 for a 2gig stick its not that much really for an uprgade) and its sexily good.
But seriously 1gig of ram? The last computer I got 5 years ago had 2gigs already pre-installed, and it was a shitty cheap ass gateway...
