    It'll probably run like s**t, just like any Windows on the minimum, but for the ridiculous XP die-hards saying that's too high (yes, some people with 12+ year old PCs actually think MS isn't supporting them out of some kind of evil greed), my worthless piece of garbage laptop I got to get through High School had better hardware.

    I'd say if your PC could run Vista decently, you have a 95% chance of running 10, and running it better. As long as you aren't a small group that didn't have some specific CPU instruction that they forced.

    So Core Ms are primarily .8-.998 GHZ..does that mean they won't install 10?..haha, I don't think so.

    Will it work on AMD Duron, Nvidia Riva TNT2 32MB, 786MB RAM and 16GB IDE disk drive?

    There are controls introduced by ms before the win8 release that blocks the installation depending on NX bit, SSE2 and other CPU features.

    This will prevent ARTIFICIALLY the installation of Win 8/8.1/10 on some machines, even if perfectly capable to run those systems.

    There are patches to workaround this for w8/8.1 but they are not (yet) available for win 10.

    For the record I'm running w8.1 on a 12 years old TC1100 Tablet (Pentium M @1.1Ghz) , I have upgraded its RAM modules and replaced the HDD with an SSD. It runs w8.1 better today than XP in 2004.

    It will run w10 as well if and when the patches will be available.

    4 GB RAM and a quad core Ivy, that's not even close to the minimum? :confused:

    Dell Dimension 4600i with 160gb IDE drive, 3.4GHz 1GB ram.. Win8.1 runs better on that by far than Win7 using XP video and sound drivers, the rest are installed at install. Haven't tried Win10 YET, being a 32bit system, I just feel time will slow down when I test it out again. I knew I kept this old bugger of a system around for something.

    Anyway, its currently running Win7 Pro (Pentium 4 is cooking my dinner ATM since its so damned hot) and will do an upgrade to 10 when I get the 32bit Win10 iso this year if it doesn't burn up before then haha

    :DWith the spec's required to run Win 10, MS may reach a billion users, any computer made in the last 20 years would love Win 10, I'm so excited I think I do do in my pants, jk:D

    I've had people who just have to be right. I told them they could replace their 12 year old piece of trash with a computer, even used, when their MB fried, and that I'd transfer the data for free.

    What did they do? Sunk over $200 for a replacement motherboard with the same ancient hardware.

    I have had windows 8.1 x32 running on a old IBM lenovo Athlon 3400+ 3 gb ram running flawlessly on my partners pc since 8.1 came out
    I also have win 10 x64 build 10130 running on a core 2 duo 6550 5gb ram

    in my experience the new the windows the better it utilises the older hardware

    for those of us who don't have the cash to splash out new pcs MS gets my respect

    Just my 2 cent :)

    And what about new machines? Does a machine with good specs, assembled in 2014, will perform so much better with Windows 10 (in terms of performance and security) than running Windows Seven? I suppose so, but I really would like to know more. Answers based in technical arguments will be welcome.

    I've seen different points of view (for instance, like this and this).

    Note: I'm not a gamer and don't need "more FPS".

    Surely win 8 is faster than 7 especially on boot time and when connecting to wireless networks, no matter the age and/or the power of the PC taken in account. I'm not so sure this is still valid for a fully updated win 8.1 and w10.

    Maybe both are still slightly faster than w7, but not by a large amount.
