Engineers at The Tolly Group have launched the Windows 2000 Beta 3
along with Internet Explorer, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook,
all of which use a combined total of 94M bytes of memory. Windows
2000 is comprised of almost 40 million lines of code and itself
takes up about 50M bytes of memory when it loads. If you unleash
that behemoth on a server with only 64M bytes, you'll exhaust your
server by just requiring it to swap data back and forth to disk.
they just launched the apps. my box here at work with two users on it
running gnome and enlightenment, netscape mail and several web pages
open, a web server, and sundry other programs, utilities and daemons -
most of which have been running for weeks - uses 100megs of ram.
