/me points to Fedora Core Objective #1 at
http://fedora.redhat.com/about/objectives.html:

"Create a complete general-purpose operating system with capabilities
equivalent to competing operating systems..."

In my opinion, targeting old machines with low ram is more of a
special-purpose task and is outside the scope of Objective #1.  Seems
like it would be better suited to a Fedora sub-project.
