From the http://distrocenter.linux.com/distro....shtml?tid=107
"FC5 is a lumbering giant of a distribution."
suggest a minimum of 256 megabytes of RAM for a graphical system, and recommend 512. Even a command-line system requires 128 megabytes.
n other words, FC5 is not a distribution for beginners or those whose only interest is a desktop for everyday work.
FC's position as a showcase for the latest in GNU/Linux comes at a high price in system resources
This review is a joke right?
Fedora Core is a free operating system that offers the best combination of stable and cutting-edge software that exists in the free software world.
At Tiger direct 128Meg of ram is $14.99 USD. 256Meg is $19.99, and 512K is $41.99
How dare cutting edge distros test on any significant hardware!
Ok, serriously, there are plenty of micro and live distros out there, to fault Fedora for needing 512Meg ...well...is about 512 Meg miss-informed!
