Not so "low level" if you ask me.

I'm sorry.. does getting spanked sting your delicate little behind?
Since when is having a light-weight OS a bad thing? Haven't people been harping on MS enough for having bloated OSes?
Sure, make allowances for multiple-core and multiple CPUs on the not-so-low end, but making the minimum requirement a single CPU was definitely smart on their end.
Having a light weight OS isn't a bad thing, but just as bloat is bad, so is keeping it small for the sake of keeping it small. If we're sacrificing a feature rich OS for no other reason than to support hardware from 10+ years ago, then something needs to change. Computers are dirt cheap these days, so there's very little excuse to not upgrade if it's so much of an issue for you that you're demanding MS design it's OS around your 10 year old computer.
