"Performance of Vista is highly dependent upon how much memory is

And there I thought 64K was more than enough for anyone.....

64 k is enough for suse 9.1

No it isnt.

9.1 wanted 128meg minimum. Says so right on the bottom of the box.

8.2 was the last version you could get to install in 64meg.
(And I can't remember any version that would install in 64k ad you wrote,
but I assume you meant meg).

Even though the 8.x versions could be installed in 64meg, you couldn't get
online update to run in that configuration.

so I did things that are impossible. What a superman I am :-)

Suse is intelligent and ask for much more than the minimum necessary

I try to push the distribution in it's limits, as I often work in a LUG with charity computers :-)

of course the more is still the better, but to be fair, we must say than this is a comparative between several linux versions and several windows ones.

new suse versions used to ask for more power. recent 10.2 seem _not_ to do that. It runs on smaller computer than 10.1 and this mean that any part of your system is better used, this is great.
