|I am running Fedora 18 on a netbook with a dual core atom processor. There is 1 gig of ram. 256gig of hard disk, and with this netbook, I do browsing, emails, and compiling programs in c and c++. |
I use gnome, but lately switched to xfce as xfce gives me about 50 megs free of ram. That makes a bit of a difference. On my real desktop, I have 3.5gigs, and Fedora flies.
That desktop is an older Intel dual core i945gnt system. Today you can buy that for $100-$200
