This states the following requirements for running Ubuntu Server:
* 300 MHz x86 processor
* 128MB of system memory (RAM)
* 1GB of disk space
* Graphics card and monitor capable of 640x480
* CD-ROM drive
The first one is somewhat funny, as I think there were only a few early
Pentium II's and PentiumPro's that ran at 300Mhz. Since we dropped i586
support in Maverick, might we also think about raising this to say,
Also while there are things one can do w/ 128MB of RAM on Ubuntu
Server.. is it a realistic minimum?
Do we actually require a graphics card? If you are clever you can get
the alternative installer to install via serial console IIRC.
