Yesterday, Brad revealed that the latest Insider build of Windows 10 includes an app that explains the minimum specs required to run the coming Windows Holographic shell and its VR/AR applications. But don’t be fooled: As is always the cast, Microsoft’s minimum requirements in no way map to what you really need to run this software.
We’ve been dealing with this strange dichotomy since the dawn of the Windows age in the mid-1980’s. Microsoft sets minimum requirements that are usually hard-coded into a Setup routine in order to prevent customers from even installing something that won’t work on their particular mix of hardware. But the experience will still be terrible, especially for those who come in at the low-end of the spectrum.
