<You'd be surprised what you can do with 4MB RAM. Actually, lots
<of 486's shipped with 4MB and Windows 3.1. You just need to be
<conservative, and use swap. Actually, I've heard that you can get
<by with 2MB... but I wouldn't believe it even if I saw it.

I have run win3.1 in 2mb of ram and 40mb of disk(386/20). Netscape would
never run as they admit it want at least 5mb (and it's cranky at that). I
was able to run a lot of stuff and most dos programs successfully

that was in '93 coad bloat would make that harder but at 4mb you could run
quite a bit. FYI, minix 3.0 in 4mb screams.
