700Mhz, 500Mhz? OK, I cede! Apparently my 10-year old desktop is one of the
faster computers around :P It does look like 256MB ram is the lowest you'll
see running vanilla Ubuntu though. My setup only takes 50MB on a fresh boot,
but I know that vanilla Ubuntu takes around 150MB, so including Miro would
significantly boost the system requirements.

Just for kicks, I downloaded and installed the latest version from the miro
repos (1.1.2). Upon running, it crashed because I don't have firefox
installed (opera is faster). I'll install firefox and get back on how well
it works, but this is something that should be fixed in the packaging: miro
depends on firefox.
