I have 32 megs, bought 4 months ago.
Funny, how linux runs faster and better with less...
the only reason anyone would need more than 32 is if you''re running a professional server, a 3d workstation, or you get an ultra-bloated operating system (COUGH*win2k*COUGH). Just because Microsoft says 64 megs is standard, and because it''s top of the line operating system requires that much, doesnt make it the standard.
Maybe you people with all the 128 MB and higher don''t know anyone else, but I know a lot of people, and no-one that i know personally has more than 64. 64 is high end for normal people.
here''s a survey:
Mean RAM: 40.6 MB
06 * 64
06 * 48
10 * 32
01 * 24
02 * 16
01 * 08
now as you can see, the most people have 32 megs. Now, maybe people who''s parents buy everything for them don''t realise this, so I''ll enunciate: RAM IS EXPENSIVE.
get that? I''ll say it again for the hearing/logic impaired.
RAM IS EXPENSIVE.
only people who have everything catered to them can think that 32 megs is only for poor people who buy budget only ''clunkers''
remember, the only reason they clunk is because you people insist on using Operating systems that are so full of bloat and crap that does nothing except force you to spend more money on something you don''t really need.
Im am REALLY sick of littlie kiddies comming in the chatroom and bragging that they have 128 megs of ram, 4 different computers, the most expensive video cards, and other expensive things that your mommies and daddies bought for you. its ANNOYING.
Go out in the real world, and earn a living for christ sake.
Then you''ll learn the real value of money.
