If Windows 8 requires same amount of RAM that Windows 7, why virtual box suggest 1GB of RAM for Windows 8 x86 and 512Mb of RAM for Windows 7 x86?

I ran Windows 7 on 512 MB RAM before. Never EVER attempt it, even the most patient person will give up using it.
VirtualBox probably realized that but it's too late to change it from Windows 7.
