@dobey said in tmpfs for ~/.cache?:
Well, tmpfs is just a RAM disk. So anything you put in a tmpfs mount, will take up space in RAM
true, but it should also be mentioned that space is allocated dynamically, no data = zero disk space. the whole idea behind a tmpfs for /.cache is a further bit of privacy (perhaps security too?), starting off with a clean cache on every reboot.
another benefit could be an increase of speed, ram is faster than any traditional data carrier. after all, this is about mobile phones and not classic desktop enviroments, so it also depends on the device ut is running on, no doubt.
