Re: release notes - system requirements


Probably not a bottom limit, but ...

Just installed it smoothly on a P2-233 with 96 Mb RAM.  Nautilus fires
up a new window in under 5 seconds (which, given that nautilus took
longer than that in 1.4 on my Gigahertz laptop, is a pleasant change).

Gnumeric, GIMP 1.3, etc. all run fine as well =)

Oh, and that's with debugging still turned on, if it makes a difference.

Kudos to all involved...  GNOME 2 rules my world.

(And to brag, its a faster than Windows XP on my laptop, too ... XP
takes a shine longer to fire up Explorer, and various other tasks are
slightly faster.)

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the
argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. -William Pitt, British
