So I have 4GB of RAM on my work pc and 6GB running on my home pc.. But in that I am running both Delphi and VS... Needless to say it gets hectic. I want to have VMs for what the clients would be using but then my poor baby at work will probably grind to a halt if I kick up 2 or more VMs...
Strangely enough, I can run multiple VMs on my home pc running both IDEs multiple times (never mind my pc @ home is an I7 and has about 9TB of space on it *innocent smile*... Imagine that!!!
"You cannot code for stupidity"
I eventually managed to nag, beg, and whine my way to 8gb; so far none of my dev coworkers have succeeded in this.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Well I did, since I also have my development SQL servers running on my labtop, I need the memory the keep the data HOT Its not for showing of.
And what does 20 Gb of RAM even cost today, almost nothing, so why not
The most expensive thing is the SSD overpriced if you ask me.
With great code, comes great complexity, so keep it simple stupid...
I can get as much as I like.
I have to share with my colleagues though, who have a virtual workplace on the same machine.
I recently got a bit extra, because I do all the heavy work
I believe (yes, I am not sure, hardware never really was my thing) it is 4GB at the moment, which is the same as I have at home.
