Manjaro memory management efficiency

I will not leave my preferred linux distro since ten years now, but i like to see what other distributions have to offer. I used Gnome 2, Unity, and now Gnome-shell (Gnome 3).

I know than Gnome-shell has the highest memory consumption. I will not use it on a computer with less than 4Mb memory. But If we have more, we can’t argue against Gnome because of memory consumption.

Recently I made my own memory tests with several distributions using Virtualbox. I only choose Gnome 3.24 or 3.26 when available. The end result was that they all use nearly 1mb memory after boot, using gnome-system-monitor [1]. Archlinux was one of the distros I tested, so I thought it will be the same for Manjaro.

What a mistake ! Today I tested Manjaro 17.0.4 with Gnome 3.26 using a development repository. And to be fair with Ubuntu, I removed from Ubuntu « gnome-software » (Software) and « packagekit » packages which are not used by Manjaro

Even with this "boost" for Ubuntu, Manjaro memory consumption is 150Mb less than Ubuntu :

Awesome, compared to its mother distro Archlinux. Archlinux offer an unmodified "vanilla" Gnome experience, that is not the case for Manjaro. I have not enough knowledge to look for, so I don’t kow if the difference come from better Gnome optimization, or overall optimization, But as we can see on my picture, Manjaro runs only 89 tasks against 128 for Ubuntu.

P.-S.

The last 10/02/2017 live iso is even better, 751M memory consumption.

Notes

[1gnome-system-monitor reports more than other command line tools as free, top or htop
