Am I smoking crack? Not at the moment. My AMD k6-2 300mhz with 64mb ran Moz on Caldera Linux eDesktop 2.4 (with KDE2 as well) unacceptably slow. In fact, I couldn't take - I had to use Konqueror. I upgraded my system to 160mb and it runs much better. The loading time went down 50%. So, I just don't see how you can say that Moz can run fast on 64mb. There is just going to be too much disk swapping. Just think about it. Linux itself is gonna take a big chunk, then KDE, XFree, PPP stack, etc... and then Moz takes about 20mb once you go to a couple of pages. Start the mail client (which I assume Nokia will want to include) and you are up to 25-26mb. It simply doesn't compute. Mozilla.org can't continue to be oblivious to reality and set 128mb as the recommended requirement
