As you already know,linux takes alot of RAM,but it doesn't need it.So it uses like 500 MB RAM,but when an other app needs it,it gives a part of it to the new app launched.People say that linux does this because it is better and faster.Let's get to my question.When I type top in the terminal it shows me the memory usage with the ''unnecessary'' RAM usage included.How can I see how much RAM it really uses,so without the ''unnecessary'' RAM usage?So how can I see how much RAM it really uses ffor the running processes?I hope you'll understand my question,I couldn't explain it really good.
