Windows It must suck to be a Windows developer. So you already have an entire legion of misguided folk hating your work for no reason (on top of the people hating your work for legitimate reasons), and then a company comes along spreading clear misinformation about Windows' memory usage, based on that company's performance monitoring software. To make matters worse, when said company is called out on its errors, it decides to publish the usage information of an Ars Technica editor's computer. As such, it is advisable to uninstall the software in question.

The backslash in "Memory\Committed Bytes" is in fact a path separator. It's part of the naming convention for performance counters in Windows:

C:\> typeperf /q Memory
...
\Memory\Committed Bytes
