    Hello
    I am looking to run imacros with firefox in linux.
    I want to run like 100 instances or so maybe 1k instances if possible. offcourse in vmware
    I want to restart linux after every 3 hours and start imacros on every startup.
    I am looking for a linux which take less ram and i able to run 100 instances at the same time . I only want to run firefox (with imacros ) and nothing else.
    I can pay too for the right advice.

    What you are looking for is a minimal installation of any linux OS.
    Kubuntu for instance is a good one for light ressources usage.

    Going for the minimal version means that there will be very few loaded services that takes ressources.

    Then, the issue you are going to face is the desktop environment that will show your desktop and that's what you can play on regardless the OS chosen.

    You have 4 different desktop manager program which you can choose from the link below (there is RAM graph for each)

    Gnome is probably the one you are used to.

    Maybe you need DSL?
    I suggest you to choose Linux distro, you are familiar with already.

    I believe that Gigapros.com is flexible enough to meet your specific requirements.
