    Allcoating memory and not freeing it

    If I were to allocate memory but not free it. This causes a memory leak, right? Wouldn't I be able to free this memory back by simply reseting my computer?

    Yes, infact as soon as the program ends all the memory if freed. The only time where you will run into a problem is if you create a program that is constantly running in the background such as a utility program on a server that stays on 24/7.

    Even so, you should always free memory allocated on the free store.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2
