These are supposed to be the minimal system requirements. Sure, most 
people will run OpenOffice on a newer Windows version and with much more 
RAM than that (and the same for Linux: most users will run it on a much 
newer kernel).

But if OpenOffice runs on Windows XP and with 256 MBytes of RAM then 
this should be the information listed there. no matter what the 
Microsoft policy is.

I wonder though whether we should update the "recommended" RAM 
requirements. Have there been any reasons/assumptions in recent version 
that would justify a higher "recommended" value, like 1 GByte or more?
