Re: Memory Usage (was: Windows XP -- digital camera/photo features)
In reply to dgrogers, Apr 27, 2001

Indeed, using physical mem is better than using virtual mem(HD), but how about those ppl with only less memory, let say 96MB? They will hear their HD read/write all the time. It may not be that bad since memory price is so low now

I have an older PII/300 system with 192 MB and it runs XP, with
about 10-12 applications active, reasonably well (i was not
constantly swearing at it, wishing that it'd run faster 8^).

The fact that all available physical memory is to be used by the
system is a normal behavior. That is, before paging kicks in, by
design. I'm not sure why you were concerned about what you saw.

I agree with that 100%. Check your memory usage with other OS's.
Just because it's used, doesn't mean it's a minimum requirement --
it simply means it will run faster since it won't be relying on
virtual memory from your hard drive which is much slower.
