Fedora at least runs just fine with 256Mb of RAM. I have a few devices
with such spec that will happy run a UX on them, the XO-1 is one
Define "runs just fine", please. Default desktop environment with some
commonly used applications like Firefox and Thunderbird? My Thunderbird
expands to over 150MB of RAM when it loads.
And then there's LibreOffice...
If "runs just fine" is intended to mean "average desktop use", I
think the experience with 256MB of RAM fits the description.
