Why is Vista Using So Much Memory?


So I’ve been running Vista on a new Dell XPS machine for about a week and things have been going well.  I found this SideBar gadget just to see how my machine was doing.  Everything looked good but the screen shot below was taken when the device just started up.  I’m thinking 53% of memory! C’mon! 



So a little bit of searching and I found this great explanation as to why it’s doing what it’s doing.  If you are like me and thinking “why did I upgrade Vista is such a memory hog” think again.  Vista using all the memory is actually good thing!  Now I’m actually thinking why is there only 53% memory usage 🙂
