LXer: Ubuntu: Going from 256 MB to 512 MB means going from unusable to usable ... plu

Published at LXer:

While my OpenBSD laptop slowly compiles Java (or not ...), I had to pull out the Ubuntu 8.04 laptop (both have identical hardware, Toshiba Satellite 1100-S101) and quickly slam out a couple hours' work late last night (yes, on the night shift, which I finished at home ... at 1 a.m. through the magic of Wi-Fi and caffeine).

On Ubuntu, yes ... on lighter distros with lighter window managers and file managers and programs, no, 256 MB is plenty.
