I had to upgrade my PC to Win7 due to my Raid having a burst issue. Now I use Windows Server 2008R2. It has 1/3 more of a memory footprint than XP but no where near the 1.2Gig on startup that Win7 has.
WinXP - 250MB ram on startup
Win7x64 - 1.2GB ram on startup
WinS08R2 - 380MB on startup
I used a premod version. It's completely legal to download so here is the link:
Why is it completely legal you might be asking? Because there isn't an included serial or activation tool. In fact you can download an unmodded version directly from MS's home site. All the mods are legal and available at:
And let me repeat, this is completely legal no matter what country you live in. The activation tools on the other hand, well not so much. I can't tell you where they are, nor can I mention the name of the Windows Loader tools. Though I will say this. The Windows Server 2008R2 once modded is as fast as XP, looks like XP or 7 depending on how far you take the mod, and has further enhancment that even Win7 lacks.
Now for this Topic, I guess this is ok. I streamed my games to my PSP for a while, but the charm quickly wore off after a few hours. This is something that 4G could really help with. Till then, I may as well be sitting in front of the system.
Never confuse heroism with simple self interest.
You must first be illusioned, before you can be disillusioned.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
