768 MB!!!

When I want to stuff as many VMs onto a virtual machine as possible,
RAM usage really matters. Particularly since RAM is currently cheap
up to about 8 GB but becomes much more expensive above that (ie. up to
about 6 VMs with all the overhead).

I can still run Debian VMs in 128 MB and do useful stuff with them
like light dynamic web serving.
