I read it ate his ARM. Wtf :)
Many Linux users are still not sure why their system have such a low free ram? And many people believe that Linux is bad at memory management. It is just a myth, actually linux is better at Ram management and optimizing applications that run on it.
What linux does is keep the cache on RAM and load applications from that cache, and as memory usage of a application rises, it frees ram cache and assign that to the application.
Well time has come to put that myth to rest as Maaz Shah from Cloudways recently busted it by gving practical example: http://www.cloudways.com/blog/.....th-busted/
