To use ROSA Desktop Fresh R8 with KDE 4 or Plasma 5, we recommend to have at least 2Gb of memory and a 10Gb partition on hard drive.

However, we have tested Fresh R8 on netbooks with 1Gb of RAM and found that after easy tweak our OS can be used on such machines.

A short recommendation for such computers is like the following:

  • Install 32bit edition of R8
  • Change SimpleWelcome menu in KDE 4 to standard menu (kicker)
  • Install R8 with MATE desktop environment
