Heh, ignore this post. It seems someone already said the exact same thing.

About that... It must be just me but 'wastefulness' of RAM would be letting it set unused. The Vista superfetch works very well for me. It has no problem clearing out the RAM very quickly when a different large application/game is ran.
If the OS can use the RAM to load my programs faster then great! If you don't like it you can always turn it off and see how you like that instead... If my memory is correct its under Services.
One thing about Vista that I though was kinda strange is on a fresh install - after updating - it is extremely slow to boot to desktop. But after about a week its lightning quick. That is prolly one reason that people drop it without giving it a real chance.
My only regret is that I got an OEM version from Newegg.com. Should have gotten the retail so I don't have to re-buy it.
