Today, while I was exploring my system properties, I found that my computer shows only 0.99 Mb RAM. But I have 1 GB of RAM and I have Windows XP SP2. Why does computer show 0.99 Mb ?
I am really sorry. It's GB. Why does it show only 0.99 and not 1 GB ?
RAM is active memory use by the computer while running programs. Virtual memory is what it creates when it doesn't have enough RAM; it uses disk space as if it were RAM. Essentially it creates a big swap file containing pages that it swap in and out of RAM quickly. Usage of disk space this way is faster than usage as storage, but it's only temporary - while programs are running.Meanwhile, what is the difference between Virtual and Physical Memory ?
No. What a silly thing for your friend to say. They are guilty of the very thing they accuse wiki of doing - spreading false information.are wiki articles always reliable ? Someone told me wikis have 90% false information .... is that true ?
Yes, it is always a risk. But Wiki is self-monitoring. Someone's false info will last for a very short time before ten other contributors descend upon it and remove it or correct it.Since everything is editable in Wikipedia, I guessed someone might write false info. That's why I never consulted Wikipedia for getting info.
I find it odd that you wouldn't trust Wikipedia, but would trust a forum (ie Physics Forums). In both cases anyone can write anything. In both cases people tend mostly write accurate information, and point out and correct incorrect information.Since everything is editable in Wikipedia, I guessed someone might write false info.
