I have a 16gig RAM systems that under Windows is listed as 16gig but under Ubuntu is listed as 15.7 gig machine. I am guessing the OS is pinching 300mb for a crash kernel or similar but I would really like to know for sure from the experts
As an experiment I created a 8gig Ubuntu 13.x machine in Virtualbox that listed itself as 7.8gig so I am guessing there is a logical explanation rather than hardware fault
Brilliant OS by the way, I've been using Ubuntu now as my sole OS for over a year, and made a donation accordingly on downloading the latest 12.04 ISO for my new build.
Thank you in advanced,
