Vista? Can't run it.

I find it interesting that Windows Vista needs 1 GB of RAM as a minimum requirement just to run a user interface that looks hardly better than OS X, and quite a lot suckier than what you can put together in Linux. And 15GB free hard drive space? My "good" computer couldn't run it. My only Windows XP partition (used for games every couple months) is 14GB TOTAL. 15GB FREE?

I wish I had a list of what all Vista is doing that requires that much hard drive space. Meanwhile there are complete operating systems that fit entirely on a single floppy disk. Does Vista really do 10,000 more than MenuetOS? Let's be generous and shave off an order of magnitude; does it really do 1,000 times more?

Another reason I will never buy Vista. As if I needed more reasons.
