Default Re: Is this "normal" RAM usage at idle in Windows Vista?

If you have loads of free RAM, the OS will keeps some of the things you loaded then closed in the memory for faster loading next time, until that memory space is required elsewhere, in which case it is freed up for use. After a couple of days of being on, my rig can show over 2Gb in use and that's with W7.
