Last week, a reader of my blog, Michael, wrote me:
The Microsoft XP tablet PC edition has, I believe, a memory leak. The solution is to reboot the system regularly (at least once a day).While I believe his solution has merit the thought of doing it moved me closer to Mac than to YABHTU.
I may not have to.
Brian Beyer just posted a comment on my blog that Microsoft has apparently fixed the memory leak that crippled many Tablet PCs.
A memory leak in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 causes a gradual decrease in available system memory. This loss in available memory causes degradation in system performance. When this behavior occurs, the user must restart the computer. This problem is caused by a memory leak in the tcserver.exe service.
