I remember when I popped 512mb into my system back around 2002. Was running Red Hat 8 as I recall. I never, ever got the thing to use more than half of it. No matter how many tabs I opened in Mozilla, no matter how many kernels I compiled, I had a good 256mb worth of disk cache at all times, and it never hit swap. I remember losing entire 100mb files because that machine was a bit flaky and would hang sometimes, with the file never being written to disk. I got into a habit of typing 'sync' a few times after doing anything important, a habit I still have to this day. So now I'm sitting on a laptop with 512mb, running Fedora 8. I'm running Galeon and Evolution, and they're eating up 304M RAM and 428M swap. Sigh.
