Because you have ram to be used. Your PC is SUPPOSED to use as much as it wants to speed things up. You'd be horrified if you ever used Linux.

>> No.51372340


Here lies your only problem.

Windows is only for super computers.

>> No.51372343

How come when windows uses more ram, it gets slower? this is what ive always experienced, and this is just windows and not other programs running in the background.

>> No.51372359

This. Also, it's not that hard to download more ram, OP.

Just Google around.

>> No.51372361

then please explain this: >>51372090

Lol. He was posting b8, ya retard

>> No.51372408

but the part about Linux being horrible was a fact, so I thought maybe the rest was too.

>> No.51372423

These are both easily explained away with "because windows is shit".

Seriously its RAM management is fucking dire compared to Linux, and they keep using the same system for it for release after release. Why they don't just scrap it and rebuild it from the ground up based off Linux or Unix stack is beyond me. The performance gains would be appreciable enough for this alone to let them sell it as Windows 11 or some bullocks.

Although if this were the case you'd get all the hardcore, dyed in the wool, Windows fans bitching and moaning that "muh windows uses too much RAM".

The whole fucking point of having RAM is to use it and save on disk swapping, its near pointless having 16GB in Windows because the fucking thing will never let the apps use it all, unless you're doing heavy encoding or rendering work.

>> No.51372432

Oh lol yh.

>> No.51372445

>why don't they just rebuilt from ground up w/ Unix?

MS said they'll into it on next release, iirc
