    how much mem linux 7.0 is recommended

    I saw that the os is working with swap , and programs are fairly slow in loading (such as netscape etc)

    What is the recommended mem volume for linux 7.0??

    The more ram the better. 64 is just ok. 128 is better. 512 plus is sweet. Most, if not all, distros will set up a swap partition for you, so you will always have swap with you. Remember, it is more than just the ram, though. A slow hard drive, crappy video, sluggish cpu, etc contribute to slow loading of programs. Some programs are so bloated that they are inherently slow to load (StarOffice, for instance).

    HTH

    FYI: there is no such thing as Linux 7.0. You probably mean RedHat 7.0 which is just one of the many Linux distributions.

    Yes, I should point out that Linux 7.0 will probably require a fairly large amount of memory. At least a gig, I'd imagine.

    (I am joking, you know).

    Yeah, I just wanted to add to this. It also depends on the DE ( Desktop Environment ) and WM ( Windows Manager ) you use. If you use like IceWM or Blackbox or something similar which required less memory hog, then your program will start up faster. It also depends on the programs you use ( Like stryder144 said ). Netscape is one of the crappiest slow loading bloat I've seen to date. So if you use Opera ( not that I endose close-source free-beer software ) with IceWM, then your program will react faster with 64K of memory.

    I have Debian Woody with IceWM and Mozilla and it runs pretty decent on P 233 with 64 MB of RAM.
