Here is a couple of reference points. I have a old Dell Dimension and a
Micron PC that have 800 MHz PIII's and 256 GiB memory. The Micron has
Ubuntu 8.04 installed whereas the Dell has Ubuntu 8.10 (well actually
Edubuntu). I installed both using the respective live CD. Neither
machine is my primary computer so they are mostly used for testing,
browsing (using Firefox) and some word processing. Both perform more
than satisfactorily for my purposes. Surprisingly well in fact.
