i can confirm as well - to some extent.

my work laptop started with 128mb of ram, with 2mb to video. i just used the alternate text-based installer no problem. every attempt to boot a live disc GUI failed. so after it was installed, everything ran so SLOW! what's depressing is the copy of XP actually runs fine. i figured xubuntu would run better than XP, but i was wrong. at any rate, i stole some ram from my old work laptop and managed to get 51`2mb in it. still isn't as snappy as XP, which is very disappointing, and probably the main thing ubuntu needs to work on in general is snappiness of the GUIs!

can't beat the stability tho... which is why i don't use XP!
