Do you need more RAM for your computer?

    we all know it can be a pain working with lots of applications on a computer, and although RAM is less of a problem than it was, it can still be an issue.
    So take a look here if you have a problem and need to borrow some processing power

    Only 160TB of RAM, but that should be enough to get by:D

    And to think I used to lust after a 64 kilobyte machine.

    And I really wanted the 16k RAM pack add-on for my 2k ZX81... :eek:

    So then, only four orders of magnitude more memory than I am running:)

    Maybe, but I would much prefer far more stable operating systems, which have less bells and whistles and so that advances in soft and hardware functionality can be activated by something akin to plug-ins, which are stored and operated from folders outside it's core O/S, so bugs etc can be far more effectively resolved.

    The more functions you want the more complicated the code. The Unix approach is to keep the kernel lean but that just means the code has to go somewhere else - generally into common libraries. In theory this reduces the chances of a library or application code failure bringing down the system. Doesn't always work I'm sorry to say.
