  Now this is interesting, because I used Xubuntu Edgy desktop-cd without
any big problems (though with a few annoyances, of which I've already
told about) in a machine with 192mb of RAM - I also installed Edgy with
the CD, the only problem being Gparted not setting boot flag on the main
partition (likely fixed since then, similar bugs closed). This was with
Beta desktop-CD, but right now the final desktop-CD is running in the
same machine without any problems. Opened Firefox, Gimp, Abiword,
terminal, gxine: 'free' command reports 134 MB RAM used without buffers
or cache, still working.
