Re: Will Xubuntu 14.04 LTS get faster and lower on system ressources?
The goal of some of these others derivatives is to stay light or make themselves lighter, while providing newer more security applications and systems (including kernels). It is possible that Xubuntu becomes lighter with newer technologies being implemented, but it is possible the usages go up due to the complexity being added for more features.
I have 8GB of RAM running Xubuntu and my memory usage is the following:
1.62GB used. Why? Well Chrome is eating up a bit. About 1GB with 4 tabs, so overall 600MB give or take.
You'll just have to wait and see.
