    According to the paid version of Advanced Task Manager, I on average have 70MB of memory free with 20 processes. Is this good or bad? Normal? Even with a clean factory reset and no apps installed I only average about 120MB free. If I go Into my droids settings an look at running services it says available: 41MB+85MB in 21 Other:50MB in 3. What does all that mean?

    Linux considers free memory to be wasted memory. It tends to use the free memory for buffers, etc. rather than let it set idle.
