Actually, you have about 16 MB free, since the 10.2 MB in the buffers
column are reclaimed when a program needs memory. This is the buffer cache,
holding recently read disk blocks in memory to speed up access. The buffer
cache shrinks and expands depending on the amount of memory available that
isn't used by programs.
