I'm not sure that's true, actually. FreeBSD by itself may be a lot more
lightweight than Windows but once you add in Xorg and KDE I think it
needs about the same, if not more, memory. People will argue that you
don't have to run KDE or GNOME but as can be seen from the success of
Ubuntu people like complete desktop environments.
