QuoteWe know users want control over their PCs.
QuoteApplications page themselves out all the timeMany applications today page themselves out when they are minimized, or when parts of them go inactive. They do this to reduce their effective RAM footprint. Therefore, for many processes, additional paging out makes little difference. For most all processes, over the long-term, the same amount of RAM is probably consumed regardless of whether it is forcefully paged out or not. After all, over time, the pages it uses are paged in, and the pages it doesn't use are paged out.
So what does SmartTrim do differently? Well, it acts conservatively and with sophisticated selectivity. It doesn't force everything out of memory all at once. It politely asks memory hogging background processes to release their working sets. It has many other criteria built in, such as never trimming the application you're actively engaged with. This, and more, make
it the first truly intelligent RAM optimization algorithm ever conceived - and it's about time! I mean, all we're doing here is not being dumb about RAM optimization.
