Windows 10 runs on pretty much anything

Windows 10 can be installed on a pretty wide range of hardware according to their recommended hardware requirements, but the guys over at TechReport didn't believe them when they included a 2003 era AMD Athlon 64 3200+ with 512MB of memory. Long story short, on a computer with half the performance of most tablets available today, Windows 10 not only installed, but actually ran pretty well. 

Microsoft's decision to have a common operating system blueprint that can run from an internet-of-thing device to a (super) computer means that Windows 10 has been built from the ground up to run comfortably on low-performance parts.

The fact that it shares the same minimum hardware requirements as Windows Vista (at least for the Premium experience) is a fantastic achievement but that's only part of the story; Windows 10 actually runs better than its beleaguered ancestor. Much better.
