I've got my SSE2 T40 512mb now running at about system max - 3mb free ram. And It's still responsive!

 

I've Got these programs Running:

 

Finder

Dashboard

Mail

Safari

Address Book

Itunes (Music Playing)

Iphoto

Quicktime (Playing)

System Prefs

Word (Writing Docs)

Powerpoint (Playing with Transitions)

Remote Desktop Client

MSN Messenger

Grapher

Chess

System Activity Monitor

 

Don't you just love how macs never become unresponsive, slow or give up. Unlike their PC cousins!

 

EDIT: And the machine is running with 83% free CPU!

Of course, you don't have disk problems. In my computer, doing anything while a file is being copyied takes directly to that funny flower turning around for minutes.

I don't know what you guys are talking about... I've had 60+ processes running in Windows for probably on the order of months without reboot. I'm a CS major and have been doing school work (software dev., papers, presentations, diragrams (Visio), gimp, etc.) non stop, I never close anything except Firefox when it gets funky (which it does on all OS' in my experience.

 

I like OS X and all, but here I don't follow.

My Windows XP PC can run many applications at once without crashing. That's if their idle though.
