Hardly.  People run a full Gnome (or Mate) desktop all the time with
lots of GTK apps running.  Similar for KDE and Qt apps.

You can't measure memory usage like that.  What Linux reports as the
memory used includes mapped files like shared libraries.  This isn't
real memory use in the sense you are thinking.  I can assure you that
ten hello world programs do not consume 300 MB of real memeory in total.
