Why ,NET applications use so much memory

You may notice that even a small application seems to consume a lot of memory on your system. I am strating to think that this is because the runtime reserves two 16mb segments for the small and large object heaps. I assume that you don't often see it as 32mb segments in task manager as a lot of it will be unused and paged to disk. Its just a theory though :)

Not sure if you've seen this one, but for more information on .NET's memory management check out this article. It also provides some really good links into MSDN docs
