Which version of Node.js to install on CentOS 7?

I will install more than one NodeBB forum on the same VPS (I don't expect many traffic from the beginning, if traffic increase I will move the forums on another VPS).
I like how nvm works, but I am worried that it's not efficient, because of RAM usage - when running another NodeBB executable it will be loaded in the RAM as different program. If I run several instances of NodeBB with global Node.js install it will take less RAM for the loading of the Node.js executable. Is this correct?

@vstoykov I believe each instance of node will have its own memory pool.
Yeah, none of that stuff about memory usage is correct AFAIK.
Use nvm to install Node v6.
As @pitaj says, we recommend Node v6, although come October, we'll switch to recommending v8 :shipit:
