Same here.

I have a triple boot machine (XP, W7 & LM18.1) and several XP VMs (I use the Games VM regularly).

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

As of this time, Windows xp is still the third most used OS in the world. I think it's not still appropriate to brand Windows xp as a rare OS at all.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-BIT

There's no point in upgrading to Windows 7 if your computer is not up for it. 1GB of RAM isn't enough even for the minimum for the 32-bit version of Windows 7. 2GB will start writing to page file when gaming or when you have multiple tabs on in a browser.

Even 4GB isn't somewhat good for today's standards, I know because my computer previously came with 4GB ram but even lighter games had a huge impact.
