RAM Usage (off USB Live Session is high)

Greetings Again,

I was on the brink of installing Zorin on my 6GB Micro PC rig… when… I noticed that with next to nothing open over 3GBs of RAM were in use. Like so –

I have Zorin Core running of a USB. Is that normal RAM usage? (When Ubuntu Mate is idle with nothing open it’s just under a GB of RAM.)

When you have nothing open in Zorin Core – how much RAM does it use I guess is my question.

res for me with only screenshot open.

I believe when you are running from a ‘live’ disk or usb source most of the operating system is loaded into ram.
This is not typical of Zorin O.S. after it is installed.
