I'd like to consider local install (linux) of Galaxy (pre-built binary or build from source). I was warned that analysis using Galaxy requires huge amount of memory (tens-Gb or even hundreds). I'm sure it's problem dependent though. For now I intend to do analysis vis-a-vis an archaeal genome, which is not too large. Is that practical to try to approach the problem on a recently purchased Quad-core computer with 8Gb memory or should I stick with the public implementation?
I'd appreciate your advice.

The Galaxy Project does not track local installs directly. We don't even keep track of the number of times it is downloaded.
However, you can get an approximate feel for how widely used it is in a couple of other ways:
We will be updating most of our statistics at the end of this month. We'll also be back-curating the new citeulike tags back to the beginning of 2013.
Hope this helps.
