*installing linux on my mini laptop*
- Dad: "you should make a backup image of windows 10"
- Me: "LOL NOPE!"

(With 2gb of ram, linux makes it the perfect lightweight coding machine. But with W10? Jesus christ)

    everything is fine with win10 on 2gb machines.

    @MaxDeepfield have to disagree :( On idle, windows 10 consumes 1.3gb of ram already. It's unoperable, even when you don't add up the constant notifications/update requests

    @honeyBadgerJeff Agree, on Windows 64 bit -> consume about 1gb of ram as fresh install or fresh boot.
    In my experience -> at Windows 32 bit, consume about 300 mb of ram as fresh install or fresh boot. (but it still slow like ass..)(That's why I switched to Arch Linux) (Noticable faster and never look back)

    @zmzmuazzam98 using MATE for a bit of sexiness. I use like one tab on qupzilla and atom ~1.2gb ram ;) sometimes I use i3 if I have more workload.
