I found a perfectly functional P-IV 1.9GHz/512Meg RAM/40Gig HD/Dual-headed-matrox in the dumpster at the recycling centre. Booted it up, and a spyware infested Win2000 popped up in my face. That was fixed with a Linux install. How old is the machine I just described? It's perfectly capable of running WinXP. Vista, probably not all that much....

When i worked for MS that was the exact configuration I used to run tests on vista. Now if i was doing actual work on it would want at least another 512 megs. But then i've been have machines with 2 gigs ram for the last 7 years. Of course personally I'm graphics heavy.
