@feonixrift I'm sure it can run reasonably in 8GiB. I've been running it in 12GiB and then 16GiB and it was ~fine-ish, but I had to be careful which cubes I run simultaneously.
What really kills it is the browsers. And I include any Electron app in that group. Stop writing Electron apps people, for the love of everything that is holy! Just damn stop!
The fact that as a developer someone has 32GiB of RAM to play with doesn't mean it's okay to demand that kind of resources on a user machine.
@rysiek Even when I used it browsers were the unholy ram-breaker. I could at the time run up to about 5 vm with up to 3 of them using firefox, but this was before electron.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
