hi Karl,

Ubuntu as a live CD requires more resources than Lubuntu does. And, just by

of threads on ML to put onto notes of what lubuntu will run / install under
so there is the cessation of this recurring thread.

As people can install lubuntu in a 512MB VM system, the question has to be
asked. The truth is what does it need to install on actual kit, VM's are a
guide but it is only from people doing installs on kit with the lower specs
can we truly know what is & is not acceptable.
