Is there an overview of the RAM requirements for the long vs. regular WU types under Linux / Windows?
Is it correct that the Linux client does not require Virtualbox?

For RAM requirements : long 1800 MB free and regular 1800 MB free. But we use a fraction of that.

Well, so far I never saw more than 250 MB of RAM used on Linux systems - regardless of the task type (long/regular).
