Still true, although it's not so much "Linux is better than Windows"
as "Linux is more modular than Windows, so you can omit the bits you
don't want". If you grab a default Ubuntu install, it'll demand a
certain amount of RAM and CPU and so on; but if you're running it on a
low-end system, you can kick off some of the heaviest parts (usually
the pretty graphics), either manually or by grabbing a dedicated
low-end-system distro like AntiX.
