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.

How do you know it is the fault of the OS and not something you have installed? What have you looked at so far?

Lol my first experience with windows7 was that its keep coming out of sleep mode. It turned out that the ethernet card wake it up, no idea why would that happen without wol but after I turned the function off the machine is still coming back from sleep mode for 5sec then turns off at the middle of the night, great os ;)
It has a bunch of useless shit service like superfetch ,network location determinator* just turn them the hell off and your mem wont disapper randomly. My box uses 20% of 8gb.

You've got to be kidding me. I think you need to really look into what is eating your RAM. You have big issues, and it's not from Windows 7.

My 4gb computer is in and out of sleep with matlab and stuff, and have been for weeks, without any hint of a slowdown. Windows 7 is not what's causing this for you.
