The problem is that you consider 2 GB acceptable for any application.

I didn't say I consider acceptable for any application, I'm talking about InteliJ IDEA, arguably one of the best and full of features IDE. I don't think Chrome memory usage is acceptable, for example. It is a matter of giving and taking. We cannot come back to Windows 95, things evolved and accumulated, the applications will get bigger and more memory consuming. If it is fair or not is a case by case issue.

We cannot come back to Windows 95

And this is the core of the discussion: Why not? Why do we always need to make software fill all resources? What's wrong with efficiency?
