system memory
It is important to have this shown. Things will be less confusing.
If it "would probably result in lots of complaints about it being too much", then maybe it really is too much. Sugar developers are clearly not using the original B2 hardware with 128 MB.
The complaints don't go away if the users are left clueless. The complaints merely get misdirected. For sure, the actual problems (OOM killer, slowness) don't go away. Better bug reports would be good, even if "better" just means "the system wedge grew from 180 degrees to 270 degrees".
As much as possible, assign system memory to the guilty. Each X client takes memory in the X server. Each process takes memory in the kernel.
