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 think the story here has nothing to do with technology as much as pure incompetence on the part of people running this business, and how they are able to still be a business. How? How do some of these manage to even keep their jobs at a time when there is an abundance of highly skilled people already out of work. I imagine quite a few are scratching their heads wondering why they can't find employment, but idiots like this are working as CIO?

Why would anyone even consider using this software in the first place is beyond me, especially now.I think this probably is some trust fund created business run by someone who probably thinks turning off their monitor is the same as shutting down their PC.

If you run a business, you can choose who gets to work there. I guess the question is why they are still in business given the caliber of their employees.
