The explanation above is some of my knowledge of the Windows system requirements, it’s really amazing to go back and see how the system requirements have evolved over time. To think that Windows 1.0 only needed 256 KB RAM while the latest operating system, Windows 8 x64, requires 2 GB of crazy RAM! This makes us wonder, what will be the system requirements for the next Windows operating system?

A few of me for this time, hopefully useful and add to your knowledge.
