Gnome or game eating more ram?

What more eating a ram? Game is not started it is just a launcher.


It’s hard to say. Such spikes were discussed some time back:

Given that Gnome generally does use more resources, makes it at least a contributor to resource hogging. Thus, an accomplice if not the perpetrator.

I felt that some games ran better on Gnome. But did I take several measurements and compare them to Xfce? Nope. So that doesn’t leave me anywhere other than relying on others’ data.

When I off launcher a game it showing 3.4GB

How much is it on Xfce?

Not checked yet but what i remember when login on start gnome and xfce without start any programs then xfce take lower RAM.

That awesome low using RAM in xfce on Zorin. Using htop.
