I have to agree with kronium. I read this article and I was like "wow... now I understand." So I stopped using my task killer. And I started experiencing more laggy behavior from the interface. For example, I'll be in the Phone app (which you would think would extra special super priority over other apps) and experience lag tapping the keys. Or I'll be flipping through the People app looking for contact information and experience major lag when changing which information tab under a contact displays. If I kill the extraneous tasks when this happens (e.g. Browser, The Weather Channel, Facebook) then everything is bright and snappy again. I can't disagree with the original post, which was excellent, BTW. But my perceived experience on the Sprint Hero suggests that the task killer can be useful.
