I just wanted to ask your opinions on a certain matter.
My aim is to bring RAM usage down a bit in my new Linux Lite install.
When looking at
htop after a cold start I realize around 750 MB of RAM (or slightly more) is used with nothing triggered off by me except
My Lenovo desktop machine has 4 GB of RAM.
For comparison´s sake I took a look at my Debian VM. Starting it with the default xfce DE I get 403 MB under the same circumstances …
… and 251 MB when starting it with no DE but just the i3-tiling window manager. So i3 tiling WM gives me a great advantage there.
I was wondering if I should apply the same scenario to my main system (Linux Lite).
My questions are:
- does anyone have some experience with the i3 tiling WM? Is it good for everyday use
- do you have any other suggestions for bringing RAM usage down (at least a bit)
Many thanks in advance and many greetings
