What is dirty memory?

Dirty memory is the memory, RAM,  is supposed to release back to the system after being used by certain processes, because of not all application designed perfectly.  After a while, more and more dirty memory which supposed to release back to the system for new coming processes build up, so available memory/RAM getting short. This is a reason why You should reboot your computer some time. I reboot mine at least once every two days.
