    So I sent my XP install out the window by accident and I was just about to reinstall when i saw the WDP image on my computer. Figured, why not?

    I'm currently installing, and so far so good.

    Specs:
    P3 @ 800mhz
    768mb ram
    Travelstar 60gb 7200rpm HDD

    Windows 7 was running decently on my old 4200rpm fujitsu drive. So i figured i'll give WDP a go, if its too slow i'll go back to Win 7 or XP.

    EDIT: Utterly useless. Takes roughly five minutes to boot. Metro lags like there is no tomorrow. Windows 7 is the best this thing can do.

    Im amazed you can even get 7 to boot; even with Aero turned off, the kernel alone is 400-500 MB. That doesn't leave a lot of room for apps to work... I'm guessing that's where your 7200 RPM HDD shines; you know it's flogging the crap out of that swapfile... ;)

    Yeah, you should vlite the hell out of Seven if you're gonna run it. But it does run quite well, actually. Even on the 800mhz/256mb motherboard.

    I'd even go as far as to say that it runs on par with XP. But while XP runs fine stock, you need to modify Seven.
