"XP minimal requirement test"

basically these guys tried to have an up & running xp setup in increasingly older machines :tongue:

the lowest they could get is a 8 mhz pentium box with 20 mb of ram and an isa video card :shockkk!: shocking considering that according MS the min requirements for xp are a 233 mhz comp with 64 mb of ram and a super vga videoadapter :wink:

"Win98 versus 386er"

this is pretty much like the previous experiment but it's all about having Win98 in a 80386 comp (minimum requirements were a 486dx2 @ 66mhz)

maybe some of you have already seen this somewhere else...:smile: still surprises me to this day
