    My G750 came with bags of ram like this, but it was such a good deal it didn't bother me. I use mine for a smart hefty ram disk!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Try Mint 18.02 Works well for me!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Holy crap. After reading this I went out and installed 16 additional wheels to my car. Gotta go faster now!

    I have a 16GB i7 laptop with a 1TB disc. It runs Linux Mint 8.1. It can run virtual machines in VirtualBox, KVM, docker, etc. With most of these you can allocate the needed memory for the VM. I like VirtualBox because it allows me a lot of flexibility with regard to device usage (USB, discs, etc).
