Default Re: Help a linux noob!

If it's got 1GB of RAM you could be in for a world of tweaking. 2GB probably OK since you're not going to run other stuff (especially browsers - Firefox and Chrome are appalling memory hogs). 4GB would be no problem.

Aside: OSes and DEs are memory hogs too. Until recently I had an old 486 computer still running Windows 95, perfectly well, in 16MB of RAM. Not even the most extreme low-end Linux distros of today will even start with only 16MB.
