Here's the problem, Unix is not an OS that was ever meant to be turned on and off. when you do so, it dumps the memory to disk and forces references to that data instead of reloading and accessing memory for it, over time that impacts performance like nothing else and nothing fixes a sluggish mac like a reinstall. If you knew what you were talking about, you'd know all about this - it's okay to admit that macs get boggy over time.
If anything, Unix is known for its brilliant memory management. If you'd have done the research yourself, or indeed know as much as you claim to, you'd realise that it's celebrated as one of its strengths. You're calling that shit out as a 'fact' but I can guarantee you won't find a single paper to back you up.
Not nonsense at all, it's a fact. Google away, assuming your browser is still able to. Either you know fuck all about unix and/or OSX or you just refuse to admit it.
Probably both looking at the fucking dribblers around here lately.
"For a server with a UPS, great."
Hahahaha, why are you mentioning a server with a UPS? A UPS has fuck all to do with memory management. The only saving grace for this comment is if you're confusing memory with power management. There, you might have a basis for your comment as vendors typically provide woeful ACPI drivers for *nix systems which leads to horrible power management and therefore shit battery life.
Otherwise, you're trying to infer that UNIX memory management is only viable when you're running a system 24/7 and that if you "turned on and off 5 or more times a day" you're somehow going to have major performance problems that only a restore could solve. Please, please explain your "logic" behind this because I can't even begin to decipher the stupidity.
Seriously, you're spouting absolute shite.
