Description of problem:
Current the install guide suggests 256MB as minimum requirement for the default desktop, which is simply wrong.
The system is practically useless with this amount of memory (keeps swapping).
We should bump it to 512MB which is reasonable (and not that high by today's standards anyway).
There was a recent discussion on the minimum requirements. We should find those out and use those across the board. I believe the discussion was ongoing on BZ and was tagged with a RN ? tag.

Removing myself for these bug components as I'm either no longer involved in that aspect of the project, or no longer care to watch this particular bug. Sorry if you are caught in a maelstrom of bug changes as a result!
The Installation Quick Start Guide now states that Fedora needs a minimum of 1GB of RAM, so the concerns raised in this bug have since been addressed. Closing.
