My guess is the average for developers is ~8GB. 2GB RAM is really not enough for pretty much anything these days - the browser alone easily
chews 3-4GB on moderate use. I recommend you just upgrade your
computer (or compile on a better iron).
are your primary language is java? i'm asking just out of curiousity.

That was uncalled for.

Firefox requires 4GB of memory to build.
Chromium requires 8GB of memory to build.
Android requires 16GB of memory to build.

If you want to work on big projects, you WILL need a decent computer.

I think 4GB for a modern programming language's implementation is not an unreasonable requirement, even if it could be brought down in the future. Especially considering that you can't even buy a new laptop today with less than 4GB of RAM, and 3GB is becoming the norm for smartphones.
