    I've been using xcode for about an hour. I checked the activity monitor and I have <100mb of memory left :eek: I have no idea what's been using all 4GB. There are also some page outs ;/

    Your kernel, kernel_task (process 0) is eating up that real memory.
    It's the very core of Mac OS, and maybe it's dinner time.

    that seems like its unusual for the os to eat up all the memory?
