I am currently using a PIV 2.4GHz with 480MB RAM with fluxbox!
This works really well, I have firefox and opera browsers installed and
will look at getting my favorite Seamonkey installed too sometime but
isn't a priority as this machine doubles as a DNS, NTP, NFS, and Radio
streaming server :-)
And I only have a 35GB HD too which is peanuts considering that in my
full-blown network in my other house I have round 3.2TB.......
So far am only using 80-90MB RAM when X is turned off! With X on it's
round ~125MB that's with running Xterm, Firefox, and Rhythmbox or even
In my opinion it's always best to test and try out a few WM's to see
which one fits the bill best, after that it's easy!
