    Would be nice if you could do a WEI (Windows Experience Index) rating on it.

    Lol!! 1.0... does it idle at around 70% memory usage with nothing else running? that means that it runs better than vista... i might try this on a 800mhz p3 with a 512 stick and see what happens... literally.. hmm

    Win 7 7000 on 525 mb ram (artifically reduced). Actually ran smooth. Used it for about 2-3 hours. The task manager shot is running Firefox, WMP playing off a network share, interbox client for KM sharing with main machine, utorrent and default service load.

    Never saw a score with a comma instead of a dot between the numbers before.

    1,0 not 1.0

    Very interesting. A friend of mine for a laugh shoehorned Vista on to an old P3 with 768mb RAM and it ran sort of OK ??????

    I tried 7 on PC with 128 MB RAM, it didn't boot, but with 192 MB RAM, it is working! (slow, but who want to use it on pc like that, or no?)

    Not every country uses the decimal like we (in the US) do. :)
