This. Memory that is not used is wasted. If you spend a bunch of money on a high-memory setup, you should be furious if the OS doesn't use it all.

The problem is it then swaps to disk when you use an application. I'm fine with 100% memory being used at all times, but it needs to actually be used and preferably by whatever needs it the most.
