You are talking apples and oranges. The discussion was about not being able to use a quality IDE on the desktop because of only 4GB RAM. An SSH target is a different fruit entirely.
You're right, but the conversation seemed to have moved on to "professional developer" with no further qualification.
For clarity then, I was assuming the original context of the conversation when I commented my opinion that developers sticking with 4GB by choice was unprofessional.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
