Lubuntu System Requirement

Hello again amjjawad,
Well, the link doesn't say and I don't say that 700MB is the minimum
requirement for Lubuntu, only to install using the desktop iso with a
"Alternate ISOs are for low-RAM PCs. Computers with less than 700 MB of
RAM are considered low-RAM computers. Here is a screenshot of the
alternate installer. Instructions here and here."
"* Desktop (Graphical Installer) - These versions are suitable for PC's
with over 700 MB of RAM. Do not try to install 64 bit on a 32 bit
machine. Installing 32 bit onto 64 bit is totally safe.
* Alternate: a non-graphical installer image used for computers with
less than 4.3GB hard disk space and below 700MB RAM. Use the alternate
versions for non-standard setups.
* Minimal install: Using the minimal ISO, it is possible to install and
run lubuntu-core on a PC with only 64 MB of RAM. 128 MB of RAM are
considered the minimal requirements for a usable Lubuntu Desktop system."
I agree that Lubuntu 12.04+ works well, once installed, with for example
512 MB RAM.
