Memory requirement depends on environment. Without X running, 32M is
probably adequate. With X running, how much RAM is adequate depends on
which desktop you run and how many apps you keep open at once. So to say
any OpenSUSE version is more memory intensive than something else is
just hogwash. Everyone who uses XFCE seems to think 128M is plenty,
while 128M is barely usable in XP. OTOH, 256M can disappear quickly if
you use KDE, while XP seems perfectly happy with it.
