Yes, Linux can use 8GB RAM.
The only problem is the user interface, but I think you could run a
remote Mathematica kernel on a Linux server and use the front-end on
the Mac as a "terminal".
I never tried this, however. (someday I will try this with a
Mathematica kernel running in an OS installed within VMware).
