Guess the RAM

That’s right folks today we’ll be playing the popular game…. Guess How Much RAM I’m using! Wooo! haha well, let’s see what we’re working with, a fully updated Virtual-Box 4.04 (I assume that’s the latest one). Now let’s see the desktop! Click for bigger picture.

 and hmm so quick question. What OS is this?

I see, and now for the big all important question, how much RAM am I using?! This counts for total, including the page-file or swap space. drumroll please.

Well, folks that’s all the time we have for today, until next post we will reveal the answer. Those of you who answered correctly will turn smart instantly. A great prize indeed, so play the game today!

A little more detail for those of you who actually would like to know more about the test. See it’s running a Windows XP setup install and a Debian derivative Distro called Crunchbang #! Both are known to be light and not use so much ram.

But I’m not going to leave you completely hanging, the answer to the first question, Which OS and I using? Is…. openSUSE!   And using the Gnome desktop, which uses its fair share of RAM. Those of you who got that one right, pat yourselves on the back for using your head and Google. Wait how was I supposed to know that one? See the top left corner, see that green icon? Hint, hint! It’s the openSuse Icon!  

But how am I supposed to guess how much ram the computer is using? By math, guessing, estimating, averaging, whatever you figure it out.

For those of you who would like to know a bit more about the test machine, well, you’ll have to wait until friday when I reveal the answer. But feel free to guess the CPU, the computer type I’m using and the specs. So until next time, remember the Linux Motto. Do it yourself!
