    I'm looking at the pie chart for system memory in the activity monitor.

    I see wired, active, inactive and free. Wired is red, active is yellow, inactive is blue and free is green.

    Anyone have a good explanation of how these work together?

    Is inactive almost as good as free? What is wired? If I have any green, does that mean i don't have to close apps for better performance?

    Thanks!
