  1. A very clean system should have under 60 at a given time.

    189 at the moment. Running Linux so processes philosophy will be a little different (and slightly more liberal) to Windows. See screenshot: http://imgur.com/U0X0t

    I currently have 60 running on my laptop, and using 52% of my 2GB RAM. :haha:

    The i7 920 I'm currently testing is running only 39 processes, and 17% of its 6GB available RAM.

    Generally desktops have less processes running when compared with the notebooks (not counting in XP here), so I think we should divide all notebook processes with the factor of 2, before posting the final number :p
