    But what about that bit on low priority memory? That certainly seems interesting. It looks like they are focusing much more on the management of the memory, not the streamlining of it. At least that's what I got out of the article.

    Memory management began in earnest with Win7 (not "streamlining").

    Win8 8102 is just taking it to a new level, Avalon.

    Yes, but it just seems like the focus is to use as much RAM as possible and delete active blocks to make room for other apps, rather than trying to make other processes run on as little RAM as possible...
    Or in other words, they're trying to make desktops more like smart-phones... at least from what I've learned so far.
