Ahhhh you mean the longhorn alpha? ok thats something different, I'm willing to bet by the time it actually becomes a full release you won't need a floppy. except maybe for scsi or raid.

I highly doubt that 1gb will actually be needed by the time it's fully released as that would be more than most people could afford even valueRAM.

512mb would be understandable somewhat, but even then that's requiring a lot of power for just an OS
