Yes, please. This is pretty much my one complaint about Windows. No operating system is perfect, but this would make it close for my current usage. Also better registry management, that can get messed up pretty badly from malware and such.

Since I'm too tired to write out a schpeal about it, here is Wikipedia on garbage collection in memory management: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garbage_collection_(computer_science)

 

OS X is generally quite good at it. Windows, not exactly so much so.

I will not miss the Windows 7 days, where a Windows Update would hog 2GB+ of RAM and 50% of the CPU. Just for checking for updattes.

I've got 64 GB but I won't be using W10 anytime soon. Though, this move is incredible merely because a lot of modern malware and whatnot still disguises itself as SVCHosts and this should [hopefully] put an end to that!

My understanding is that the last major update was more in line with a complete OS re-install in line but as a result it's kind of like a from scratch install where they actually recommend disconnecting everything but your intended boot drive so the boot loader doesn't get installed on another drive and wreck havoc when you try to change the boot order to your preference. Just saying.

OS X is generally quite good at it. Windows, not exactly so much so.

Because Windows is under the assumption you'll want to use that program or load that heavy file again later on during your uptime session. It will release that held memory over time if other stuff requires it. It was smart back in the day, as I recall it popping up during the win95 days, but it isn't a huge issue now with faster drives. OSX has always been better at micro management than Windows, though.

Seriously the bane of my computing experience at home and work. It's only half as bad as working on a fully loaded hard drive but that's still very annoying when it uses up resources at unwanted times.

You haven't played around with any firefox install using active e10s yet, have you? It's still buggy and can cause an instance of svchost to use upwards of 48% CPU and a gig of RAM, even after exiting the application and killing off any background services and letting the computer idle for an hour or more. It'll keep throttling up and down.

Its still Microsofts negligence that the damn updater cant detect which drive and on that which partition will be updated and "concentrate" on that one leaving the others alone wink.gif .
