As technological boundaries move on, and as newer hardware and softwaremake t
heir presences felt, perhaps it is time to take a look at our hardware
requirements. [1]

Many users move to Xubuntu from older computers to try to "revitalize"
them.  While the system will work, and they will be able to use the
programs that we ship in our default installation, it is possible that a
computer with only the minimum requirements will not provide the type
of experience
we would wish to show the world.

As Xubuntu is not exclusively targeted toward older systems, we believe
that it is important to warn our prospective users about this issue.

We know that many of you deploy Xubuntu on a  regular basis, so we're
askingyou to
tell us what you consider to be a *realistic* Minimum and Recommended setup.

Specifically we would like to know how much RAM and Hard Disk space you
would recommend to a new user if you were going to install Xubuntu for them.

Could they still work with the stated minimum of 512MB of RAM and 4.4Gb of
hard disk space for a desktop install?
