"The only version of Windows that ever ran on 1GB of RAM was XP - and even then it was a lot better with 4GB."

S'funny. All my Windows VMs still have less than 2GB RAM and until Win10 they mostly managed with just the 1GB and no page file. I suppose it is possible that the Linux host underneath is just awesomely efficient at driving the hardware, but actually I suspect Windows just isn't as memory hungry as you think.

Now disc space ... that's a whole different kettle of bloated fish.
