hm, that reminds me of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=887302

the relevant part of that report:

Release notes for F18 do not mention minimum system requirements too, ouch - 
please clone this bug as appropriate (I'm not reporting for Release Notes as I 
do not know if that belongs there ... the sole point of this bug is that the 
user should *somehow* get the infromation that F18 needs _more than_ 768 MiB 
RAM, which is a thing that I was unable to found even after 10 minutes at 
Google ...)
