Actually that's why Windows server products work so well. They, by design, will use as much RAM as they possibly can. This is not by accident. Having a post graduate degree in computer software engineering, you will quickly understand that having your resources available in the fastest form of memory results in the quickest processing of operations. The previous poster's comments were on the right path. Having an O/S that does more than merely superfetch would be great. The problem is not much software today is written to take maximum advantage of multiple cores and high memory capacities. SQL server, Exchange etc. reap huge benefits from high capacity memory, high I/O, and high speed storage. The average desktop user won't come within a minute fraction of the I/O generated by this software. However, that doesn't mean the desktop user shouldn't benefit from some of the thinking used in this software.
Mate, you misunderstood the whole thing, sorry.
Just my pure opinion, thanks. M$ is not really smart enough to shape itself to user behavior. SuperFetch is not enough evolved for desktop user behavior. They have the resources to blow everyone out off the water, why they revamp again the old NT6? Cut the lines like you did with Win9x/Me branch and NT, thus making old apps incompatible and let they[appdevs] recompile all the good, worthy stuff with new tools that support proper OS behavior utilizing all resources well. We need a truly next gen OS.
So there is the whole root problem, M$ stagnated so much, with not offering serious revamp of whole coding style within their own ecosystem in order to truly use all capabilities of a PC. If they are so afraid, why they don't launch an experimental OS for enthusiasts and see how it goes, look what Google did with their android in few years, even they have more progressive ideas in their OS, and they are not afraid to make incompatible apps while updating core OS.
PC always will have MORE RAM, and MORE DISK SPACE, than any mobile device, because it can be customized[is modular], and of course dissipate more heat [lol] and is hell of a faster. Why one not take the advantage of it? Therefor M$[as the biggest PC prophet] has created situation that the productivity gap between a tablet and PC is almost lost, due an lack of innovation. And now with Win8 they even erased it. I completely think - it is a big error. And no one else has such a big role in shaping PC like M$ does. So multimedia, now no one cares about sound, 5.1, screen size and picture quality. Everyone is watching the whole crap on youtube etc. Yeah things have changed truly... half of the nation is not only deaf but lack taste , but that's an off topic.
Touch thingy stuff etc... screw it, if you want to type seriously and do some work, you will need a PC. Entertainment wise M$ also spilled the water - simply with not raising the performance bar due to consoles and thus making the gap between PC and a tablet bigger and bigger and reclaim the PC as a serious device for serious people. And let the console dust in the kitchen or toilet to watch kitten videos at xhamster etc
The second thing that AMD have not enough strength to spank Intel and create competition is a different story tough, but we hope for ARM, the cup does not matter if the coffee is still good in it.
And yes... OEM vs Custom designed? We are not objective here mates, we are enthusiasts and of course we use hand crafted custom setups. But for an average user - a OEM setup is not a bad thing. It shows the middle class level. Our ambitions, custom setups are only some spikes in the graph. Just look why Intel is the biggest GPU market share holder, those are OEM's, at least most of them.
But no matter that, those big OEM's are weak in many regions outside US, where custom designs are only being sold, due to fact they are cheaper...
But in the end of the day yes... why an upgrade if my old PC does the same... and my neighbor has the same? People catch on to an old hook - look my neighbor has a pad, I need it also to keep up[so the viral behavior spreads]. It just a hype, time to times it is always been like that[a walkman, a LCD TV or an FM radio etc], it will perish just as Apple sales does also now , but a need for a train remained for years. And this should be the PC image as it should be polished. From old time steam engine powered 8080 to magnetic rail high speed trains like some latest Haswell clocked at 5Ghz+.
Where to put that power? Simple not only gaming - those pads and smart phones etc produce byproducts - videos etc... and they are hell of a big... easy editing them, in a flash, while compress with more serious codec? And the UI made so simple that even a blond soul could do it and put their beloved effects in it?[oh yeah win 8 brang out of the box mkv h264 support, wow...]
It is still 2013 and it cannot be done on the fly really. Why? Dunno, my personal picture video collections starts to horribly expand and I don't like it. I can bet everyone has a some sort of mess in their personal data collections, and what for PC should be used in the first place and afterwards it could be streamable to that crappy tab, that already is by that time retina class 4K resolution, and show it to our beloved grannies. That is not the only example. Nevertheless M$ fail to impress us with handy things, just an abuse...
In the end you wonder why 4K resolution isn't out yet? It isn't the hardware, but lazy software that lacks ideas, high standards what to do with it and utilize... again...
