Entitled: Ram + Chrome + Linux OS?
What I would like to know:
Is there a long term Linux Operating System that uses the least amount of ram to run Google Chrome and or Chromium and have a quick robust responsive OS which would fit my dual boot along with Windows XP?
The closest ref I could find is:
which dose not address ram usage with Google chrome chromium running.

Background to question:
None of these Google queries provide the answer:
Which long term release Linux Operating System can I use that uses the least amount of ram required to support Google chrome chromium.
Ram resources required to run Google chrome chromium in Linux.
How to ask a question to Google chrome chromium about Linux.
LQWiki search: Google chrome ram use all distros, Google chrome ram use all Linux distributions
What I Know:
This distribution would not fit my above requirements.
Lubuntu 14.04 claims that to have a responsive OS you need at least 1MB of Ram.
What I think I Know:
A low resource older Linux like Lubuntu and Puppy Linux would probably have the best chance of providing a OS/box?
With in the Lubuntu and Puppy is there long term Linux Operating System geared to provide an answer to the question. I have tried but I can not find anything specific other than Lubuntu Ref: above. Arch Linux tricky for beginners?
Possible correct answer.
All Linux OS's pretty much handle browsers the same way. The ram required to operate the browser is incumbent on the browser requirements of how much ram it needs to run.
If the above statement seems to be true, no need to reply.
If the above statement is approximately true, no need to reply.
If the above statement is wrong, please tell me why and which Linux OS should I examine and indicate a trusted ref. to support the reply.
Take a look at the ref: below:
Way over my head on the statement here. but might might be a answer within (a little to cryptic for my knowledge base.
Closest conversational information:
"Google Chrome (or rather 'Chromium') isn't ready for Linux yet" ---as of 2009
What I do not want to Know:
All the tweaks and rules regarding how configure Google chrome chromium in Linux in order to save ram, unless, they can be only done uniquely to a particular Linux OS. Would need to know why,how and References.
All the tweaks and rules regarding how configure Google chrome chromium in Linux--whole different topic.
Just add more ram!
Use chrome OS.
