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.
