Big distributions, little RAM 6

Linux

It’s that time again where I install the major, full desktop, distributions into a limited hardware machine and report on how they perform. Once again, and like before, I’ve decided to re-run my previous tests this time using the following distributions:

Fedora 18 (GNOME)
Fedora 18 (KDE)
Fedora 19 (GNOME
Fedora 19 (KDE)
Kubuntu 13.04 (KDE)
Linux Mint 15 (Cinnamon)
Linux Mint 15 (MATE)
Mageia 3 (GNOME)
Mageia 3 (KDE)
OpenSUSE 12.3 (GNOME)
OpenSUSE 12.3 (KDE)
Ubuntu 13.04 (Unity)
Xubuntu 13.04 (Xfce)

I even happened to have a Windows 7 (64-bit) VM lying around and, while I think you would be a fool to run a 64-bit OS on the limited test hardware, I’ve included as sort of a benchmark.
