If it was much lower in Windows XP, something was undoubtedly wrong
there. Perhaps you had installed some software that created this
Both in Windows XP and Windows Vista, wanting to minimize the amount
of memory Windows uses is a counterproductive desire. Windows is
designed to use all, or nearly all, of your memory, all the time, and
that's good not bad. Free memory is wasted memory. You paid for it all
and shouldn't want to see any of it wasted.
Windows works hard to find a use for all the memory you have all the
time. For example if your apps don't need some of it, it will use that
part for caching, then give it back when your apps later need it. In
this way Windows keeps all your memory working for you all the time.
