Minimum system requirements of Ubuntu 13.10???

asked Jan 20, 2014 in Open Source by SmartGeek Regular (4,370 points)  
I want to dual boot Windows 8 with Ubuntu 13.10, I'm begining to hate Windows and I'm thinking of giving Ubuntu a try. I'm not sure of the system requirements of the operating system and I can't get any information on the Ubuntu's official website.
