Resolved double-negatives in title. Linked to WP for "flash memory". Rearranged for clarity and removed duplication.

revised Does every OS need RAM?
Conciser title. Removed the details of the original scenario, as clearly answers have focused on the RAM-less OS part and the asker seems to be happy with that. (Kept the historical note, for clarity.)

comment How can I delete everything after the first column in Notepad++?
@Cornstalks \s.* is shorter. Maybe even use \s+.*, to match an arbitrary amount of whitespace, now that we're coding defensively.

comment How can I print legible text in a font size <1.5?
Just curious: Why do you need to be able to read it under a microscope? Labelling?

revised How are pseudorandom and truly random numbers different and why does it matter?
Clarified title and content. Removed unnecessary repetition. Removed the weaker and redundant (600k rolls) example.

@Chris Ah, ok. I don't have a Windows handy to test on, but some clues would indicate you can do something similar with vlc.exe from Windows' command line, though obviously with different flags. Worth investigating.

comment Webkit browsers inconsistently load webpage images/resources
I'm also mystified. The error implies a networking issue, but other browsers' working correctly rules that out. Just to check, you could run some manual DNS queries for the problematic hostnames using dig from the dnsutils package.
