BUT I don't think that any developer uses a Computer with 64MB RAM today
Yes, maybe you are right. I for example have a small client who is using an XAMPP on a system with Windows XP and just 256MB Ram for an intranet website for just 3 users. He feels okay with it. It is not fast but for his work he feels okay with it. Where should we draw the line?

The performance depends hardly from the used techniques and applications too. if you are using CMS like CakePHP a page can load much longer then procedural php. You don't really feel the difference if a page needs 200ms or 150ms to load
Such comparisons are never fair. Yes, faster is always better! But maybe a configuration which will get your stack very fast has the opposit effect on another user. What i want to say: performance optimazion can't be generalized: It has to be done from user to user.
I don't say that my very own opinion is the only truth. It's just my opinion. i hope you keep that in mind

Well, i personally don't need them because i tweek my systems on my own. But yes, this is a community board from users for users. Maybe your changes will help others who are not sure about all that settings.
