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.

Well, they could have at least made it to where you could register the trial version with a real license, so you just don't have to do the reinstall.

It isn't a "trial version." It was a pre-release beta/RC build. The pre-release terms were quite clear.

Nobody would want to run a pre-release build anyway. Not only is it incomplete and *known* to contain bugs, but it isn't subject to support, security updates, or even driver/application support.
