I've been on the evaluation copy for a couple months. I've had 0 problems with it so far, i'm definitely a fan.

processes that are written to eat RAM will always eat RAM.
video RAM is a different story - only interfaces that are being drawn on the screen are allocating, which is something they can control at the windows API level.

im just talking out of my ass on that last part, but it kind of makes sense

also, if windows 7 supported workspaces at the window manager level, i would consider it.

this is a feature that every linux desktop manager/window manager has supported for, well, ever. i believe this was also a feature in NeXTSTEP/OpenSTEP's window manager, which is fucking old.

do you realize how much more annoying my job would be dealing with users that have 4 desktops?

workspaces are a "virtual" thing -- the appearance of (usually) four physically separate desktops. you open up outlook, you move it to workspace 2. you open up firefox, you move it to workspace 3. you do whatver your main job is on workspace 1. want to check the web? hit some shit like windows key + 3, do a little browsing, hit whatever combo + 1, go back to work.

i dont really know what there is to support unless your end users are senior citizens who wouldnt get the concept of a virtual desktop.

all of the processes still run under the same explorer hive, and share the same user memory space. some applications are able to supply this now, but they are pieces of shit.
