Well, the first thing I noticed was that you are using 1.3 GB of RAM. Since I'm not a real guru when it comes to how Linux uses RAM, somebody else needs to chime in to clarify. If it requires 1.3 GB regardless of how much physical RAM is available, I'd say it's using way more RAM than I'd like to see. On the other hand, if it only uses 1.3 GB because it has 16 GB available, then that's a different story. 8.1% is a livable percentage of RAM used in most cases. Since I only have 8 GB available, would it then use only around 650 MB?
The Mint install I have on this laptop is burning a little less than that and I'm not pleased with that much being used. When I was running Q4OS, I think it only used 250 MB or so of my physical RAM. That's what I'm looking for. Something definitely under 400 MB. I'm not exactly sure why, but in my mind I put that 400 MB figure in as what I'd like to see as the most used.
