ah well just since we were all talking about it..
has a biteen about OOM, and why users don't like it... has a good point,
I have a large scientific app which streches my machine to close to limit,
and some other app goes lala, and it blows away my nice one which has been
digging stats for 2 weeks or someat.... I blame the admin for not adding
more swap :-P, what would xBSD or Solaris do in this case, would it kill
the large app ?
