and *that* is a lot given that full featured servers need between 740 MB 
and 1.5 GB running Fedora after 6 years of upgrades and keep them clean

after "rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*" and "yum info kernel"
have fun with with a modem line!

it's sad that these days most people lost any sense for ressource usage 
and a single application needs the same disk and memory usage than a few 
years ago whole operating systems running a windows Desktop, Adobe 
Photoshop, Corel Draw, Microsoft Office and a bundle of development 
servers at the same time

feels like new faster and larger hardware is for 90% used that 
developers don't need to consider ressource constraints because i don#t 
see that much more functionality or in fact over the last 10 years GNOME 
vene removed more visible functions then it added
