Windows 7: I really start to love Windows 7 hehe

I really start to love Windows 7 hehe

OMG Title.
Currently, I really start to love Windows 7. The main reason? RAM usage!

There's currently running RAM in-between []:
- 2 folders [23MB]
- Firefox [83MB]
- Windows Live Messenger (+ 2 conversation Windows) [22MB]
- AIM (+1 conversation Window) [35MB]
- Foobar2000 [23MB]
- Vuze (Aka Azureus) [66MB]
- Super Playlist Surf! (Audiosurf Add-on) [13MB]
- Audiosurf [582MB]
- Steam [42MB]
- Skype [8MB]
- NOD32 [11MB]

All that only take 1.38GB of my 2GB of RAM!!
I'm amazed. I don't think Vista would have done better.

Two screenies :




The RAM usage got somehow higher but it was first at 1.38GB when I saw the first time. But still!

Just checked back... RAM is back at 1.38GB.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying the new Operating System. It is always good to have extra RAM left over for that extra special program.

Hi Lebon14.

These are my pictures of a similar situation. However I am only using Firefox to browse the forum and , now, typing this.
I'm now using 1.287 GB 31% of 4GB as I type this.
I noticed I'm using twice as much CPU as you with only a few more processes running.
As you say I think running the snipping tool and displaying task manager puts up the RAM use slightly.
It's a bit better than Vista x64 but not a great amount less.

Best wishes, John

Memory management under Win 7 is handled far more efficiently than Vista IMO, it really does a great job in that department, even on systems with very little RAM.

Windows 7 is definitely going to become one of the best operating systems out there. I'm using it now and I love it.

People have said Windows Vista is bloated due to the large system requirements when compared to Mac OS X. Since Windows 7 has the same requirements, some people are saying it's just as bloated. However, is there really any validity in this claim? I don't think so.

I would have to say no. Just because something has a smaller footprint doesn't mean it is any better. It could be coded in such a way it is actually slower to use then something that is larger but has efficient programming.

Why are Windows Vista and 7 so much bigger anyway?

I always seem to have a lot of ram used compared to others (although I do have nod32 running a scan atm).
