OK - I admit I know almost zero about GUI enabled email programs. I'm still using a text-only one. It's currently using 28MB of RAM which I still think is too much, but it has been running for a few weeks now and I do have some very big mail folders. (some over a GB or 2)
But even so - Outlook isn't as bad as that, is it? I can not imagine that someone had written an outlook looka-a-like for Linux and make it more bloated than Outlook.
If they have, then we're all screwed. We've not learnt the Microsoft lesson - or maybe we have - bloat software so we need a bigger, faster system and accept the backhander from the memory & processor manufacturers...
Eclipse is a Java based IDE, AIUI... Again, you're solving the wrong problem - if that sort of application needs 1GB of RAM it's seriously screwed up.Sadly it seems to be the only realistic option for development for the Android environment.
Is it? Shame. I can use makefiles, gcc and vi for the n900 ... Why do people make life complicated.
