Windows 7 Memory Consumption

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

If you believe Devil Mountain Software, Windows 7 apparently has some serious issues with memory consumption.

Of course, it turns out that the credibility of Devil Mountain Software could be…questionable.

Devil Mountain Software is a real company. However, the CTO–Craig Barth–is a pseudonym for (now ex) InfoWorld blogger Randall C. Kennedy.

I have been using Windows 7 since before the publice beta and never experienced any memory consumption issues. Kennedy/Barth stands by the data, though, so I’ve come up with a theory. Perhaps Devil Mountain Software is getting the metrics it is because its their software causing the memory consumption issue–which also explains why those of us not using Devil Mountain Software don’t see the problem.

It could happen.
