It  applies.  The major  point is  that with  containers, RAM  is shared
accross containers (the same kernel is used for all containers).  If one
container  needs for a  few seconds  200 MB,  it can  just use  them. No
memory needs to be allocated for the exclusive of one container.

Please, don't patronize people.
