Microsoft has restored the Windows XP minimum system requirements for Windows Vista. These are nearly identical to Windows 7’s maximum requirements.
This is because the operating systems is almost entirely based upon Windows Vista and the company has taken every step to ensure compatibility.
While this may leave some users wanting more from Windows Vista however, most users will still find the operating system to be an excellent experience. Most tasks run flawlessly.
Another requirement of Windows Vista is that the processor must be capable of supporting the Windows Server Core feature. This allows all processors to perform simultaneous functions such as networking, storage, program processing, memory management, and video.
Moreover, even though Windows XP’s new system requirements say that a processor can only support two programs at once, many users still run multiple programs on the processor. This causes overheating and subsequently damages the processor. Windows XP won’t suffer such a loss in processing power because it has a driver that will disable any programs that use the processor for a time so your computer can be protected from frequent use of programs which could cause damage to the processor.
