I actually read that Windows reserves a lot of memory that it's not actively

that it's caching system is not as hot as Linux's. Apparently Windows

I found a lot of articles and/or forum entries to that respect when googling
Being a layman, when surfing the net it's hard to differentiate between
well-founded truths and urban myth hogwash.
