RAM usage

I don't have anything open on my computer and the RAM usage is 525/1.96GB according to my Conky display.

What is using up all this memory? Conky?

Is ther something I can post back that may offer a hint of what is going on?

Re: RAM usage

If you use "free" you must read the field +/-buffers / used. The more used space is only caching.
