It wasn't any better with a Pentium 100, no mobo cache, and 8MB ram. The 3.11/95 transition gets my vote for the worst Microsoft OS transition. Hell, my friends and I would still talk about how much it sucked in 2001, so much so I was a bit afraid of XP.

The official requirements of XP too were unrealistically low: Pentium 233 and 64 MB of RAM. I feel like, at least after SP2 time frame, 256MB was bare minimum and 512MB was true minimum for not having constant disk activity.
