Jwoody: You're confusing virtual memory with swap, too. Don't do that :)

I'm not sure what you mean about AIX. What does "I/O by paging" mean, and how is it different to "disk I/O" ? Do you mean that you can use a syscall called mmap() to load a file without actually loading it, and it is demand paged into memory? If so, all UNIX OSes do this bar a few exclusions that are designed to work on MMUless machines.
