Riddle me this a Game running on windows uses 10GB of ram. Exact same copy running on Linux uses 2GB of ram. It runs smoother on Linux. Other than the 5 days it took for me to get it to run on linux it seems Linux and wine beat windows. Now why?

@omnipotens Good question. I use Windows at work and maintain a Windows 10 install at home for work reasons in addition to my preferred Linux machines.

Could it be because of how the two different OSes handle memory allocation?

@marlowe221 No idea but I dual boot. It normally stays on linux except for the occasional game or app that requires windows that I cannot get to go in linux. Just seems like a big difference.
