Well under 4gig (including swap partition, etc partitions) is my goal, though most likely it will end up being under 8gig (extra partitions included). Im hoping, however, that by pulling out the stuff I don't need and using an SSD HDD, that boot time will increase to ideal conditions.
Basically, I just need audio support (output/input) via TRS plugs, webcam support, and a GUI-based browser with flash support.
I would like a boot time from cold start to be less than 30seconds. Again, these are the IDEAL goals. Through actual development and experimentation, and then added hardware research, we will see. I know that under my testbed hardware (after coming to an ideal-sized distro) that just to get to where the BIOS boots from the HDD takes about 10-15 seconds. (When the PC turns on an Intel CPU logo pops up, etc etc). Again, however, all of this is pure experimentation.
