My only issue on a 1GB RAM machine I have is with a popular XUL based
web browser I dare not to mention.

On that machine I can run the followings without a problem.

aMule, Claws Mail, Ekiga, Gajim, GIMP, LibreOffice Calc and Writer,
Liferea, MOC, SMPlayer, StarDict, Thunar, Tor, Transmission
 ~ 200MB - 400MB

I never run the followings simultaneously.

 ~ 40MB - 200MB

 ~ 200MB - 300MB
