    I've been using the wget command to download various websites at a time in cygwin in windows 7, my pc has 8GB of ram and I've used up 86% of it,since many sites have been downlaoding since 26 hours ago. If I switch to using the wget command in ubuntu to scrape sites, will my memory usage go down, or do I need alot more memory if i want to scrape sites?
