True. I've been doing 30-track editing on a P4 system with 512 MB
memory, no problem at all, Ardour handled that very well. That was
just editing, mixing with a lot of plugins etc. could be another
matter.

The *only* case when I've seen it fail was strangely enough when
recording just a single stereo track on a dual quad-core machine
with 4GB of memory. Input was coming from firefox playing a Youtube
video, routed via ALSA's Jack plugin, and recording failed repeatedly
with 'your hard disk was not fast enough' messages. Yet that same
system does 80-track sessions without a wink. So I'm pretty sure
firefox is the one to blame here.
