But does it really do garbage collection and manage swap space? In the old days (Mach/NeXT), if you were a standalone user, printing/faxing all day long, you would eventually have to stop or re-boot the system to reclaim/reset the swap space. Maybe they killed that legacy but my big issue is with robustness. Show me the bullet-proof garbage collection and I'll start getting interested.
