Great post and very interesting to me.
I also run the same setup (Android Studio, FireFox, Android Emulator) on a Virtual Machine that only has 2.5GB RAM given to it.
Just this morning I was thinking, "how is that even possible?"
It is quite slow but none of the processes ever crash like they do on my real machine that has 8GB.

I think what you've explained here (virtual memory) is in effect what the VM is doing. It is quite a bit slower because this VM only has 2.5GB of RAM, but on my main machine (8GB and an SSD) I probably won't see near the slowness and I won't see the crashes.

I will try this out later today. Thanks for the great insight!Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
