So I don't need to click every month, every year or so is enough, right?

@liamdawe Would it be possible to have graphics over time as well? I'm especially interested in the market shares (in our community) of AMD, NVIDIA and Intel for the CPU/GPU. It would also help to see the trend (what screen resolution was popular 5 years ago? What is popular now? etc.)

Edit: Nevermind, just saw the trends view!

Kinda off-topic but kinda relevant, just now I came across on r/pcgaming subreddit about, "Is 8gb of ram no longer enough to play a game with browsers open? It seems like Firefox and chrome eat up 40-60% of my ram"

So GoL users... what's our opinions on this? For me, I think 8GB RAM on Linux are nearly to it's limit but still enough for at least 1-2 years..

FYI, Firefox (my default browser) in my computer are running at 100 - 300 MB, Vivaldi 100 - 500MB (as it's basically a modified Chrome, correct me if I'm wrong) and Midori at 50 - 200 MB. Usually, I'm running 1-3 tabs on Firefox and rarely exceed 10 tabs. Not using Chrome/Chromium anymore since late 2016.

I'd say 16 GB is a norm today, to be able to run most games comfortably. I personally like building stuff in different VMs, so prefer even more.

I use chroots rather than VMs, but my 32GB RAM is usually mostly used for compiling software too (mostly because I run the chroots on tmpfs).

Trends are hard to predict, due to specific hardware releases having a bigger impact. For example I expect AMD adoption to accelerate after Navi and Zen 2 will come out.

I run the latest games on my 8 year old desktop that has 6GB of ram with no issues.

I have a GeForce 950 and I can run most games on the highest or close to highest settings with 30 FPS.

It also helps that KDE is great with memory these days compared to Windows.
