Who do people on /g/ care so much about minimal RAM usage?
They even go so far as to disable caching, prefetch, superfetch, etc despite it having no effect on their ram availability.
Cached memory can be purged when a program requests more memory for itself.
Unused RAM is wasted RAM!
If you want to bloat your RAM, go on, install and run stupid shit you don't need.
I care about lifetime, temperatures and performance.
Look at SSDs, would you really use every GB, although it hurts it's lifespan?
I don't think so.
If you have to load more into memory when you open an application it will take longer to load.
I don't mind using ram for things applications that use it.
I do mind that a lot of applications is using resources inefficiently and thus being slower than they need to be.
If I were to look up a datasheet for something I would most likely open my browser and make a search to find it.
Then I would simply click on the link to view the pdf.
If this is done with firefox I would be using 150-200MB of ram. If the pdf file was handed over to an application made for viewing pdf's it would use a lot less resources.
Even the browser could be more efficient. Alternative browsers use 40-70MB of ram to do the same thing (although they rarely have the plugins available so I personally use firefox).

The real definition of insanity is doing THE SAME FUCKING THING, OVER AND FUCKING OVER AGAIN and expecting a different outcome every time. Pathetic faggots like you make me kek every time I see a post like yours.
Don't like it? FIND ANOTHER BOARD. or you know, keep sissyanal crying about the same shit over and over again, it shows what kind of person you are in real life, a do-nothing loser with a soap-box the size of cockroach.
Unused watts are wasted watts! Remember, if you buy a 1500 W PSU, throw as much power-intensive hardware in your rig as you possibly can so you can push 1500 watts non-stop.
And remember that unused CPU cycles are wasted cycles. Be sure to boggle down your CPU with intensive applications at all times!
If I could afford a 1500W consuming desktop, I would definitely be using it like that.

And this is why KDE is superior. You can switch Okular to "greedy" mode, which will cause it gobble up at most 50% of your unused RAM to keep the current PDF in memory at all times. Speeds up everything immensely if you've got 8GB or more RAM.
Why waste time unloading things? Embrace the bloat.
>unused CPU cycles are wasted cycles
I wouldn't be surprised if the Gov't required all personal computers during wartime to use civilian CPU cycles to brute force shit in a massive distributed computing scheme.
Quints of truth
The elder gods have agreed to blow weebs the fuck out
>being this mad that someone insulted your cartoons
Calm down m8
Plus the whole >definition of insanity is doing the same thing over
a) dosent apply here
b) is a stupid way to define insanity
Computer hardware should last far past the point of obsolescence running at full capacity regularly. Expecting anything less is just asking manufacturers to assfuck you.
Wow, you're one dumb fuck. If you think using less ram per cycle affects the lifetime of your ram, you're really a completely deluded moron. Hint : it's about power to the chips rather than switched values across their circuits.
