Default [Q] Bloated RAM. What is really a OK for sgs5?

I think ram is totally bloated with stuff, I mean.. 200-500(max)megabytes of free ram at normal use!?

I have 2gigabytes of ram. And standard system resources take like everything.
I run alliance ROM without all samsung and google bloat and still the ram is just eaten up by what?
I have disabled countless apps and services too that I don't want running. I have even gone in deep into services and disabled parts of them that is not needed with the old system tuner app.
A lot of appz is blocked from even startup on my system and I never leave anything running in background in applist...

How come android system eats so goddamn much ram? Should this systems not be light weight?
My Bloated windows 7 system does not even take so much.

Please explain why this ram occupation is necessary and what I can do about it.
I would like to debloat my system even more and free up as much resources as possible..
Will this minimal extremely debloated ~500mb ROM's solve this issue?

What good is ram if its not being used? i dont understand this obsession with needing as much free ram as possible the more memory used for cache the better.

Id be more worried if 50% was free.
