I am a newbie with any linux distro. Right now, I am trying to install ubuntu on a VMWare Workstation 12 Player. Right now the program is asking me to allocate memory for the distro. But before I proceed I have a few questions:
My laptop only has a total of 4GB of memory. 3.87GB usable. If I allocate 2048MB for ubuntu, will it deduct the total memory I am using for my Windows OS? If so, will my total memory left go back to 4GB when I am not running Ubuntu on VMWare? or will it only go back to 4GB on my windows os after uninstall the ubuntu?
Same goes with the Cores. I have a Quad Core intel core i5 on my laptop and gave 2 Cores for my Ubuntu.
