I can't even run 11.0 with a GUI on a Powerbook G3/266 with 512MB RAM.
It's way too slow. However, a G4/466 runs it just fine.

what's driving up the hardware requirement: operating system or desktop
environment?

i was trying to run KDE 4.3 on a slow machine (amd single core, 1,700, 1 GB)
and found it way too slow. when i switched over to fluxbox things got much
better.

that was on openSUSE 11.1 though; haven't tried it on factory yet.
