Right, right. I do use the native task killer every once in a while. We're in agreement then. So the statement I support is: Most people should not use an automated task killer and they should not kill tasks manually because the OS will handle it. If a crappy app constantly needs killing, uninstall it and contact the dev. On occasion, it may be necessary to do a Windows-style Ctrl+Alt+Del via phone settings > applications (or using a manual task viewer app) although rebooting should also do the trick. Power users may be able to tweak the OS in certain ways, but experimentation is the key because stock Android does a good job managing memory. Try it out without messing with it to compare.
