Mojave Experiment Goes Awry, Some Guy Loads Vista on his PlayStation 3

We're not sure what possessed one man to load Windows Vista onto his PS3—hopefully for the science experiment, not the promise of Aero—but he did and the world will never be quite the same. The only catch is that if you think Vista is slow on a PC, you're a spoiled, rotten person. In this clip, Vista takes roughly 25 minutes to boot and 12 minutes to open Notepad. Because in order to run Vista on the PS3's unique platform, the tester had to use the processor emulator QEMU—apparently rumors that Vista ran on tears are unfounded. [PS3Hax]

So, he only allocated 256MB of RAM, it's essentially in a virtual box, etc. If I ran Vista in a virtual machine and limited it, it would run like a dog, regardless of it being a PS3 or not. I'm not saying Vista is fast, but when you don't give a program at least the minimum amount of memory required, you have to expect poor performance. Minimum requirements usually indicate the slowest tolerable performance.....
