Windows 7, A New Low

Description

One of my favorite features of Windows 7 is the fact that I can install it on all my old hardware and it works incredibly. I've got Win7 on netbooks, old tablets, a Sony UX, even an old machine that I have no reasonable expectation of every really using. So it put a smile on my face this weekend when I saw this PC World article,Windows 7 Hits A New Low.

The idea here is that people are pushing the envelope trying to find exactly how far down the hardware ladder they can go and still successfully install a working version of Windows 7. The current recordholder, that we know of, is "Hackerman1" who has Win7 running on a Pentium II with a 266 MHz CPU, 96MB of memory, and a 4MB graphics card. If you happen to break a record, please let me know, I may have a t-shirt to go with that old hardware.
