I think looking at the memory usage is a red herring. In general, on modern OSes, if there is unused RAM sitting around, some program will claim it, but if the program is not actually using it (the ram), and another program needs it, the program will give it over.
Not to defend windows... All those updates, to the os and adobe and java... it;'s like a full time job keeping up. And having automatic updates mysteriously turn on is annoying and unsettling.
If you don't want to putz around with computer stuff, And you don't need some windows only program, And you don't mind spending a little extra, get the mac.

High levels of agrochemicals are used in the production of non-organic, conventional cotton. Cotton production uses more chemicals per unit area than any other crop and accounts in total for 16% of the world's pesticides.[7]

I direct sowed about 10 different things in this patch. I looked up pictures of seedlings of most of what I could remember planting. I'm pretty sure it's just some weed, but before I go pulling it all out...



It has a pretty long thick root.

how about a plant or fungus that eats asphalt...

I mean, can you throw seed onto a lawn and eventually something else will take over? Say you had more time than access to sheet mulch material, or no desire to sheet mulch.

Burdock?
Dandelion...
