Thanks for the info, I didn't realize.
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.
OK. Perhaps I can upgrade my RAM (I can't afford a new computer). Linking phobos.lib is the first time I've got OOM, I use Firefox heavily. phobos.lib is only 10 MB, which is why I thought it odd that linking uses well over 1 GB.
