Perspective on memory

(1/2) > >>

curaga:
I measured how much ram jwm used - 9.7mb - but what surprised me is that 9mb of that is my wallpaper ;)

Brings things to perspective.

Rich:
That's the price of choosing "form" over "function".

coreplayer2:
9MB wallpaper??  Interesting, is that one incredibly high resolution picture or many smaller pics all loaded without being used I wonder?

curaga:
1920x1200 unpacked (1920x1200x4 = 9mb), as it needs to be for X. I'm not that familiar with X, but I suppose it can be either kept in memory by X (ie. when set by hsetroot) or by the WM (when the wm is known to be running for the session).

Hi curaga

Am I missing something? 1920x1200x4 = 9Mb (Megabits), ((1920x1200x4)/8) = ~1.2MB) (Megabytes)
