Holy crap man! I've got over 400 tabs open in a firefox session in a Linux VM (including pidgin, several terminals, thunderbird, and a few running gedits) and ALL of it fits nicely in just under 1GB - and mind you that's also what I use to compile and test the Linux version of LisaEm. What the hell is your OS doing?

And here I thought windows was horrible when I abandoned it around ~2005 (last version I used for non-work was 2000.) Received on 2010-01-20 12:02:34
