    Why oh why does the Droid bionic come with a preinstalled task killer when its widely known that ANY task killer on ANY Android device is useless and counterproductive to the Android OS???......Anybody hear anything about this?

    Because they are not counterproductive and useless on all Android products.

    wow,great response that helped me alot.. your useless why are u even on this forum, and your wrong......part of the design of the Android OS is to keep apps and services running in the background and not have to close them when not in use

    +1... And its much more than a simple task killer, it also incorporates a 2 min idle check that is define for those whom prefer to remain pure stock...

    Can I ask you your take on why a developer and/or manufacturer of a product would release their product with something that's "widely known to be useless and counterproductive"?

    I know where you're coming from... back at about the middle of the ROMs for the D1, about a year into ROM development, devs started telling us not to use task killers. I've not used a task killer since then, only a startup killer and some TiBU freezing, but I've set up the preinstalled task manager to kill some troublesome apps that refuse to reallocate their memory footprint after they've been closed - and I've found it does a decent job.

    Fact still remains that not all apps out there are written well, and some of them will remain in resident memory long after they've been closed, and that's where task killers come into play - releasing memory that should *normally* be released to other sources, but aren't.

    My take is that Google devs have decided that a resident task killer was necessary, and I've found good use for it.

    +1 on this. Better I rooted and froze apps on Tibu, I used the task killer and auto-deactivated some apps after two minutes which ended up helping w my battery life.
