I remembered that Linux was good with memory, but this is just more then I expected, I have 8Gb of memory on my tower. I have 3 copies of Eclipse and a copy of Amarok, and many other programs open right now and when I run free I get

mpop@home:~$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       8176092    8110428      65664          0     215580    4345580
-/+ buffers/cache:    3549268    4626824
Swap:     16777212          0   16777212
mpop@home:~$ 

all day and still it has not touched any swap space. That is just sweet, it means I have a lot of room to play in on the box.
