My test boxes for the most part had 512MB and ran super. I can only guess why consumers are being lead to the milk barn in that we need 8 or more GB RAM today.

Answer -> Restore from your backup!
So I found out today that my college allows me to download and install windows 7 for free. I currently have windows xp (I hated vista). I was just wondering if windows 7 x86 would run well on my laptop which has only 1 gig of ram and 1.8ghz intel core 2 duo. I saw on microsoft's site that you need a minimum of 1 gig to run it but how well does windows 7 perform with that bare minimum?
There's also another problem. I currently dual boot with windows xp and ubuntu and I'm afraid that if I install windows 7 it won't even give me the option of selecting ubuntu when my computer starts. If this happens how should I fix the problem?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time
