Just a quickie :lol: ,

The memory requirements of the versions of Windows Vista
Most of the versions of Windows Vista require more RAM memory to run optimally on a computer that doesn't use memory-hungry applications than Windows XP.

A video-editing application is an example of memory-intensive software. Only Windows Vista Home Basic has a recommended minimum amount of memory of 512MB, which is the same amount recommended for Windows XP.

Windows Vista Home Premium, the most popular version, and Windows Vista Ultimate require a recommended minimum of 1GB (1024MB) of memory, which is twice the amount of minimum memory recommended to run Windows XP.

Something to bear-in-mind!

Nowadays M$ recommends 512MB for XP? Didn't that used to be 256MB?

Hi :lol: ,

If my own RAM serves me right I think you are possibly right! Maybe cuz of all the clonk added in bug fixes & SP's dotnets etc etc, have had an accumlative effect?
