u do realise that this isn't stable. and the beta uses alot of system power. and according to your specs its going to see slow to you.

For those of us that are MSDN members http://msdn.microsoft.com/longhorn/
For those of us who arn't http://www.pro-networks.org/main/index_LH.php

The review site was actually Toms Hardware. Here are a few rticles here

these are recommended specs, as in you can run them but don't expect it to be fast. longhorn uses alot of graphics and remember all new versions hog system resources at first. eventually m$ will make changes here and there to ensure that less powerful systems will be able to run longhorn.

3ghz and 1gig of ram is pretty much it.

ur smart overclocker. besides longhorn isn't very stable right now. wait on m$ to sort out some bugs first, then chek it out.
