Run 0.9.8 on a PC with 32 meg of memory.


The processor (PII-233) appears to be up to the task - some slight sluggishness, but nothing terminal if you can't stand IE any more. But after three or four windows, the browser (and machine) goes into terminal thrashing and literally takes half an hour to come back ... Yep, that 'system requirements' should be taken seriously :-)

Now using K-Meleon. *sigh* This is my mother's machine - I should just go out and get more (72-pin, presumably) RAM for it ...
