I don't even know of an operating system (including Linux!) that will run well on 64MB How about colorForth about 2K (yes, K) bytes including the operating system, language runtime, compiler and editor.
Just out of curiosity, do you hear the hamsters running on the wheel so they can keep the power going? I have 512 MB of RAM and my PC is STILL slower than s**t when I run an IDE, namely JBuilder8. Imagine that!

I've run an IDE in 6MB (that's *6*, not *64*) of RAM, but that was for C and on an Amiga 4000, which was a non-virtual memory machine whose OS was a lot more memory-efficient than Linux or Windows. Java, however, is a pig and I don't recommend running an IDE on less than an 600MHz CPU or 256MB of RAM. On my 128MB 380MHz laptop, it's excruciating. The closest I can get to 64 MB Java is that I run Emacs with jde on a 96MB P200, Red Hat Linux 7.2. That's OK for editing. But debugging will cause it to page heavily.
