This really should be a reply to one of the earlier posts, but I deleted
I downloaded the xubuntu 8.04 alternate CD and installed it on an old
Gateway Solo 5300 (128 Mb RAM, 700 MHz cpu and 9.59 Gb drive). The
installation was straight forward with no problems.
It took 2 minutes from boot up to the login screen and 45 seconds more
to get to the desktop after logging in. Probably won't want to do that
too often. ;)
Opening Abiword took about 40 seconds.
So, yes you can use xubuntu in 128 Mb.
