So how is the performance of Arctic Fox on M1 sillicon lately? Any issues with Jetpack Compose ? More importantly, is 8 gigs of RAM enough with M1 sillicon for smooth development? I had a terrible experience with Arctic Fox on Linux, as the IDE keeps freezing all the time so I've switched to Windows 11 and so far the experience is great.

can't say anything about 8GB of RAM, but it works OK on 16 GB. But there seems to be memory leaks, because memory usage increases quite a bit over time. No issues with compose that is related to M1

unsure how accurate this is. heap usage reported by Android Studio is 1678 out of 3072 MB

AF working fine on Linux here, but I did buy a new machine with 32Gb because performance on 8Gb was really slow. I think there were memory leaks too, but they don't seem to accumulate enough to cause a problem now.

Yes, I'm using it with 8GB RAM but found better performance on Windows (HDD) than Linux (SSD)

new patch of Arctic fox (3.1 and 3.2) has some bugs which is making it annoying. Other thing works fine (In Windows) with 16 gb RAM
