You have the wrong OS. 70 MB on Mac OS X.

I don't think it is normal for Emacs to take 130MB on _any_ supported
OS, no matter if it's right or wrong.

Actually I think both numbers are incorrect – or is top able to count exactly the used functions from some open and shared library? GNU Emacs 22.0.91's private memory use is around 24 MB, 48 MB is virtual memory, 8 MB are shared with other processes (shell?), and almost 30 MB are physical RAM.

Making any Emacs use GTK makes it a memory hog: ¼ GB seems possible ...

I already receive enough spam – nevertheless, Eli, could you make your eMail client hide eMail addresses?
