That's because Vista has intelligent features like superfetch. When you give it 4gb of ram, it actually uses it, instead of just sitting there 'free' like in XP. Vista learns your favorite programs, and pre-loads them so they open nice and instantly when you want them.
Vista uses its resources more intelligently, with the tradeoff being it needs more resources to begin with.
I agree Vista is probably not the best choice for business users because of system requirements, but, that's not what this forum is about. For us enthusiasts with high-spec systems, Vista is where it's at.
