Sorry, but unSpawn answered in post #7. I have yet to find a distro that doesn't list minimum hardware requirements on their website. For example, I went to openSUSE.org, to the support page, and put "hardware requirements" into the search box. Guess what?
DO YOU WORK FOR GOOGLE? is that it? because searches only give you advertisements and the NSA information on what you are searching for. I do my homework, just because companies are complete profiteering putz's that hide everything doesn't mean I haven't looked for hours for the info I need.
If you honestly spent 'hours' trying to find this info, I can't imagine what search terms you were using, or what search engine. The openSUSE info took less than 10 seconds. If you don't like Linux, then don't use it. If you feel that this information is hard to find, why don't YOU
put up your own wiki that has all of this available, and contribute to the community?
And really, how likely is it that someone is using a machine that's slower than a 500MhZ processor, with less than 3GB of hard drive space, in 2013?
