*YES*, David! We *KNOW*! You have *MADE* your point!
Others have pointed out ways of preventing this, or avoiding it.
Personally, I use Linux quite happily in enterprise-critical situations
- my philosophy is "if it's enterprise-critical, it probably needs to go
fast, so give it shedloads of RAM, back it with maximum swap space (I
mean, 4GB of disk costs about what, five pounds?) and monitor it for
fullness." I've never had a single box lock up on me. Anything which
is using 4GB of store probably needs to be split across multiple boxes,
anyway, or shouldn't be really run on PC-class machines.
