Lightweight in memory consumption/ memory footprint/ how much KDE use the memory. Not the harddrive.


KDE4 runs sweetly on a netbook machine with 1GB RAM and a mere 900MHz CPU.

It will run OK on a machine with only 512GB RAM and, say, a 750MHz CPU, but I would not expect much on a lower spec machine.

A system with the Pentium III (Coppermine) CPU, or anything after that, should be just fine.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_III#Coppermine
"From December 1999 to May 2000, Intel released Pentium IIIs running at speeds of 750, 800, 850, 866, 900, 933 and 1000 MHz (1 GHz)."

Just to be safe ... use it on any desktop machine made in this millenium, but not the previous millenium.
