Anyone else notice this? 8Gb of ram just wasn’t enough if I wanted to have 5 or 6 youtube videos open. It also became kind of laggy when I’d play a modern video game. So I put in another 8Gb, and man the system just runs so much better. Everything seems to work faster now. The windows don’t even stutter when you’re minimizing them anymore. Lots of little things like that have changed.
So I’d definitely recommend 16Gb for a better experience. It doesn’t really matter that manjaro uses less ram than W10 when your applications use up all the ram anyway. So I’m sure this is the same for every distro but man, I wasn’t expecting this much of an improvement!
