Limited memory

Just wondering how practical it is to run mono apps on a device that only has 64MB RAM.

Is there a special embedded stack for mono thats extremely lightweight on memory?

Six years ago 64 Mb of ram was quite standard on most new computers, and they would run Windows or Linux just fine. I'm surprised now that people regard 64 Mb of ram the same way I would regard 16 Mb.

Sure 64 Mb isn't much for a desktop or laptop today, most stock computers come with 256 Mb of ram or more, but you don't really need that much for something like mono anyway. Hey there's j2me running on Palms with far less ram than that after all.
