Minimum System Requirements by OS

By tombean ·
I'm looking for a good free reference (online book, list, article, chart, etc - source must be reputable) that will list various OS's and the minimum CPU required for running them.

This needs to cover from MS-DOS 1.0 to 6.0, first MacOS, Windows3.0 to 2000. If a reference covers at least two specific OS's listed above (for instance, MS-DOS 1.0 and 3.0), the answer will be accepted.

I had found info. on min. CPU requirements for some DOS under 6 elsewhere, so this was a big help for all but Windows NT. Thanks!

MS-DOS 1.0: 8088
MS-DOS 3.0: 8088; 80286 for full redirectors
