Gary, and All:
The above may only be an indication of the different way I use my
Lubuntu systems. My experience does differ from the above.
The way I use them, 1 gigabyte of RAM (on 32-bit architecture systems)
has always been plenty, and I don't feel 'cramped' in limited memory at
With 512 megabytes of RAM (again, on 32-bit architecture), I do have to
limit some of the things I would otherwise do, so I am feeling 'a little
cramped' in that limited memory space.
With 384 megabytes of RAM (32-bit architecture), I really have to limit
what I do, and on 256 megabytes of RAM, I can barely get by, and can't
use some things I really like to use.
On all of my systems, I do MIDI music, and run Java applications.
I recently installed Lubuntu 13.10 on a 256 megabyte RAM system, and it
seemed to be okay for reasonable use. I didn't do a lot of testing on
I have declared my minimum system requirements (for my application) to
be 512 megabytes RAM, and 800 megahertz processor speed (on 32-bit
I regularly load 32-bit architecture systems into 64-bit architecture
machines, and they run fine. But you can't in some such cases, access
all of the RAM, though you don't need to, because 32-bit architecture
programs need less memory. I can explain why they need less memory, if
anyone is interested.
I do run 64-bit architecture Ubuntu systems on my more-capable 64-bit
machines, as I have to test in those environments as well.
