Latest Jlime version for Nanonote [1], under Jlime/OE development, uses X
+ etchinus (WM) + Matchbox Desktop. And it uses 10MB of RAM. Yes, it is around
30% of available RAM, but it is not the 90%.

Also, this version has the complete libs (no the lightweight libs around)
and it has the typical daemons running as well : dbus, hald, etc.

Previous Beta work uses around 13MB of RAM.

PS. Does not E17 support SDL on fb?
