Of course, definitely so for those who simply navigate on Facebook or check their emails, Ram would not be an Issue. I fully agree.

I think It's safe to assume that most members registered on this board (and given the nature of It), would be Involved In some sort of resource-hungry task(s)- gaming, hacking (running VMs, VPNs, 60+ browser tabs open), GFX, Inclusive of data Intensive programs and applications and so forth. That's when the amount of available Ram plays a significant role In getting the job done.

Agree.

I have the good old 16 bit "Windows 3.1" In a bootable ISO file that's around 8MB (yes "8MB"). Nowadays, any 64 bit Windows 8/8.1/10 Is anywhere between 3-4GB+.

Then you better change your ISP.

Video streaming Is more so CPU and/or the speed your Internet connection. Sure Ram Is used for buffering, but once that takes effect, you're good to go.

Actually, 60 browser tabs uses less than 6GB of RAM for me, maybe it's just that using a lightweight WM on Arch clears up a bunch.

I should've seen It coming and taken It as that. I think I need more sleep- 4 hours Is not enough.

And It was a nice joke.

That will certainly help.

Right now, I've made a triple shot cafe latte. Hopefully It'll wake me.
