Because the browser alone can take up 256mb. Any OS with a desktop and browser should require at least 512mb.

Minimal standards should be set to ensure a consistent user experience.

Ah, well it seems I misunderstood you. I thought you were claiming that the actual operating system would use 512mb of ram to be considered 'modern'. Yes I can certainly agree that with general application usage 512mb ram would be considered a minimum for a desktop os.
