#7 Low screen res...

I use Mozilla (well NN6 actually) on my home machine which is actually slower at 333 MHz, although it does have 128 MB RAM. It runs fine.
(Admittedly, this is a Win2K system, not Linux, but I presume performance should be similar.)
I happened to look at memory usage last night and NN6 had around 12 MB allocated, with a max allocation (after I'd been using it a little bit, several windows) of around 25 MB. Those figures are not implausible on a 32 MB system that is running nothing else.
Also, the low screen resolution (e.g. 640x480 or so) might make some aspects of performance less poor than on a typical desktop machine, although I'm sure that is hardly the most significant performance factor.
I think it'll work ok (and I presume that there is also a chance of more performance improvements in Mozilla as time goes on). If it needs more memory they will add more memory - big deal.
Embedded systems are one of the coolest areas of potential for Mozilla use... I hope this one works out.
