I use it on a k5-133 with 32MB -- it's dog slow and swaps something fierce
(127 MB swap partition, yes, I believe in over doing it :) ) but it works
(or at least did, before I hosed x, but that's another story, and isn't
staroffice's fault at all :P )

I do it with 32 :P

OTOH, I use xfree with qvwm, which isn't a particularly heavy wm at all...
