Interestingly: I just looked up FreeBSD 64 bit (amd64 they call what Linux
calls x86_64) installation requirements: you need at least 64 MB of RAM
for installation ;-)  Of course, you will need _much_ more just to run
Xwindow system on that box...

Somehow it comes to my mind what someone called M$ Windows somewhere
around Windows XP: "bloated pig" ;-)
