Vista the Shrinking Violet…

Filed under: Work — thebestbrew @ 11:49 pm

While doing the VM thing with bits and pieces of the Demo Showcase (Chris Parkes’ links here..posts on the Demo Showcase) I casually observed that Vista is a clever little minx with memory (Vista does Tardis with RAM…).

Today, it slunk into a quiet little corner of physical memory measuring just under 350Mb. How small can it go? How low a bar can this funky little OS limbo under?

After a brief slumber, Vista then started re-inflating right in front of my eyes, gradually occupying more and more RAM, slowly speading itself out of its quiet corner and emerging into the light of normal activity.
