Yes or no?

For example, if one person has RAM for running KDE 4.1 but keeps running Fluxbox on Linux, does it help saving computer life time?

The hardware I've lost has been perdominately from bad power supplies, or poor power at the outlet (brown/black outs). 14 years from a VGA monitor seems like a long lifetime to me - still works, but uses too much power compared to flat screens.

By having more free memory you can alleviate the memory swapping and hence you reduce the wearing of the HDD. But still, there are other factors that could take your computer's life before the HDD starts to live in the "extended" lifetime due to the reduced wearing.
