This no-frills, single-purpose application provides real-time RAM usage data, but offers no other features to make it a truly robust and essential tool. NeedToKnow's minute interface appears as a floating message bar on your desktop that shows the amount of available and currently in-use RAM memory. The program is set to begin counting automatically at start-up and minimizes to the system tray. The inclusion of memory optimizer tools or a graphical display of memory allotment might bring some further purpose to this application. While this program's near-featurelessness keeps it from really thrilling us, folks requiring nothing more than a RAM monitor might find NeedToKnow worth downloading. If that's the sort of tool you need, this utility is fine for all user levels.
