Vista to use 800MB of ram, 7GB of drive space : The Inquirer has been reporting crap again.
According to the Inquirer, Windows Vista is going to eat as much as 800Mb of system memory, even when idling. The inquirer has been well known for reporting inaccurate facts in the past, and guess what, they've done it again. By inspecting the task manager picture they attached to their article, I realized that the reported 800MB of ram is indicated under PF usage. PF as in "PAGE FILE". If you look under the physical memory section of the performance tab, you'll see that 628mb is currently available out of 1 gig of ram. I can't believe that they published this without verifying the accuracy of their claim. Pathetic isn't it?
