It takes 1GB for WordPress in 2020

When it takes 1GB to run a relatively lean WordPress website in 2020 I see the appeal of static site generators. These are from my $10 a month Digital Ocean server for this website.

A few years back we could comfortably run a basic blog on a server with a mere 512 MB of RAM.

    The problem is that we had abundance of dirt cheap computer hardware since 90s, so software developers started squandering memory & resources. If only 1GB of cloud space still costed a fortune in 2020????.
