My guess is the average for developers is ~8GB. 2GB RAM is
enough for pretty much anything these days - the browser alone

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
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.
