images/news/microsoft.jpgOne of the keys to Windows 7's roaring success in the market was delivering on the promise of using less memory than its predecessor, Windows Vista, while being just as fast if not faster. Users of older machines or netbooks stand to benefit the most from a more responsive experience with a limited RAM capacity.

Windows 8 continues this tradition. In the //build// Conference, Windows Division president Steven Sinofsky wowed the crowd with a screenshot of Task Manager running on Windows 7 and Windows 8. The netbook, the same one used for demonstrating the Windows 7 pre-beta three years ago, had a reduction of almost 120 MB of RAM usage.

More than the new UI that must be one of the appeals for the small devices market :)
