What we're seeing are the rare exceptions, not the rule.

If it is working for you there is no need to change versions. That said, since we are talking exceptions to the rule you'll have no idea how it will work for you until you try it. IIRC, one positive thing you have going for you is the developer of calibre develops this software on his Linux machine.

I can't believe the Windows software and hardware requirements seem so high for Calibre
Windows software and hardware requirements for Calibre are the same as for any simple program out there.

There is no need for a special graphics card to run calibre, I have a 7 year old machine running Windows 64 with onboard graphics and things always run fine. And on the memory front calibre doesn't use much memory at all, 350 megs for a 12,000+ book library. Only complex conversions may require a lot of memory and that is an issue on any operating system.
