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.

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.

nah, i'm a usual read of osnews but never had the need to register and disagree on a news before..
and is not something that i installed because i did check that, i once reinstalled windows and only installing 2 driver(ethernet and vidcard) + firefox + EDA soft i work with.
So, the only thing i can think of is that the ethernet or nvidia driver has some memory leak that is eating my memory but if not, i blame windows 7.
