    My personal experience is that a 4GB Windows 10 64-bit host will run a Linux VM (depending on the demands of each OS and installed programs), but you will need better specified hardware to run this setup well - without running into memory problems.

    Hi omkar,

    You may experience some performance issues, like lags or temporary system freezes.

    as already said ,as long so what your doing isn't really ram intensive, it should work just fine,, I think I would just use 1 gig or even 1.5 for linux and the rest for win10
