You don't NEED more than 4 GB. This is a fact.

      True. Good thing I have 147(iq) GB RAM

    You are correct. Until just a few months ago my main machine for several years was a laptop with 4GB and before that was a desktop with 4GB. I got a used desktop with 16GB and I no longer need to be constantly concerned how many tabs are open or needing to close programs. With 16GB I never even need to look at ram usage

    I would not want to go back to 4GB

            that's just my second gpu, again, i'm only use that one for solidworks, so it doesn't need to be amazing
            not that my host gpu is much better, since i don't play modern games

            Still can't see host tech specs, oh well. In the end, you really do need more than 8gb

            you didn't ask for host specs, the host has 32G of ram, my post was in response to a post which suggested you needed more than 8G of ram to have a job, and my post was light fun demonstrating my work using less than 8G of ram, plenty of jobs don't need as much as i'm using

            Here is my regular ram usage
            It's really just qemu eating everything up
            Also I have no idea how to avoid the fact that my threads are always running somewhere ~10%

            Do you like looking glass? I just plug into the second display port on the monitor, but I also consider the ease of access. Is there a loss with respect to latency? Is it noticeable?

            i have the gpu connected to my main monitor as well, so i could instead press a button on the monitor to switch to it, but i like the convenience of having it in a window so i can use the monitor for something else in an instant
            there's no latency difference that i can tell, and i'm the type of person who doesn't run a compositor because i despise input latency. it works using a shared memory segment between the vm and the host, so you can expect it to be way faster than something like vnc or steam in-home streaming

            i also use looking glass (not for work, just for games) and it's good enough for my boomer reflexes. would recommend.

            i wouldn't even use it for work purposes if i could feel a difference in mouse cursor response/latency, no way i would tolerate that while drawing for hours at a time, it's not a game, but it still requires a lot of clicking small points quickly

      8GB RAM in 2011? What the frick, RAM was super cheap back then, I remember the first PC I bought myself had 16GB 1600.

      also what the frick is it with this shithole, I'm supposed to wait 60 seconds for a fricking POST?
      at this point they really should be paying me for posting here.

          I got 16 GB for 20 bucks, I highly doubt RAM was that cheap in 2011.

          It wasn't that cheap but I remember there was a time around 2009-2011 where 16GB of RAM were very affordable. At least the regular stuff, high end memory was a different story.
