New GNOME 2.24 is an incremental improvement

Posted by: Benjamin Huot on September 29, 2008 10:03 PM
Why do the reviewers review Linux on machines with dedicated video cards a GBs of RAM? How about testing it on a computer with a lot less RAM and integrated video card. I know this is not a lot for a new computer, but Linux is often popular to get more out of older computers. Most people do not have dedicated video cards nor do they buy a new computer every year. I paid $800 for my 3 year old computer and it only has 512 MB of RAM and a Celeron and an integrated video card and am not planning on upgrading soon as I don't use it as regularly as my Mac. I thought Linux could run fine on 512 MB of RAM.
