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.

I loved following this as it is a train wreck in the making. Something I have long despised is brought out into the open, that is the complete lack of journalists in the tech industry, an industry filled with hacks, morons, shills, and other miscellaneous twits. Why, it is just one step behind sports journalism.

Anyone here remember the controversy that has popped up several times now with game developers vs. game review sites? Better give that game a good review or they pull their ads.

It will be a very long time before any of these journalistic endeavors come even close to winning a Pulitzer so to speak. As it appears now, Infoworld was fully aware of Kennedy's outside adventure. Infoworld should have disclosed this completely, yet they did not and thus have absolutely zero credibility as a magazine. How could you trust anything written by anyone there?

p.s. My Windows 7 media machine reports 0 free memory...should I buy more now? I wonder who Randall C. Kennedy would advise me to buy memory from...a company he owns stock in I bet.
