    Personally, I'd prefer memory management to be one of those things
    that just gets done RELIABLY, without having to worry about tuning
    some collection of variables that are meaningless to most of the
    people using the system. In my book, OPTIMAL is of considerable less
    importance than RELIABLE - that's why I use Linux in preference to
    WinDoze in the first place...

    Best wishes from Riley.
