"Ubuntu Lite: An Alternative to Xubuntu? The people in the know
claim that Xubuntu is just the ticket for people who are looking to
use their older low spec machines. Be this as it may, it has been
my understanding that you really do not want to operate with less
than 128MB of RAM.
"Ubuntu Lite, by contrast, is said to work with 64MB of RAM, and
if need be, it can even work with as little as 32MB of RAM.
Considering the advantages demonstrated by other Lite Debian-based
distributions, it could very well open up some doors for folks
looking to make the switch, yet not possessing up to date hardware.
