I could care less about the total amount of installed apps; I've got plenty of free yaffs2 flash for what I end up running...I simply don't want my apps to get oom-killed.
I simply wish to run, ALL CONCURRENTLY, (cpu speed be damned!)
StreamFurious or Last.fm
AND the browser
without one or more (or the home screen) forcibly being killed due to out of memory errors.
Load Browser, 2 or 3 of those always end up dying.
A normal commute for me on the bus: I'm chatting on AIM. I've got a irssi session open on my VPS in Connectbot. Last.fm playing some futurepop. I tap the notification bar to read the new email I have, which contains an HTML link. Click the link...Boom, music stops playing. Close browser, homescreen reloads slowly. Go back to connectbot, well, im disconnected.
RAM = Godly.
