Memory management and virtualization was non existant on microprocessors at that time. So they came up with those scheme that was valid at that time. But now with tons of RAM, you can memory map the executable alongside with all dynamic shared libs.
Oh I agree, but that's an antiquated system, I thought you meant modern BSD/Unix.

So, evidently it's not antiquated to page to disk when there's an abundance of physical memory ala pagefile style?

Agree, but in order to free up more memory for cache, the OS may decide to page out very old pages to swapfile.

I agree, having pagefile on a spare raptor on a diffrent channel with the page on the OUTER RIM of the platter is the best way I know of maximizing its performance.
Shame I use my spare sata controller for a dvd drive now or id do it.

There is no such thing as too much pagefile, it doesnt do any harm having it at max as long as you keep it fixed.

Does Vista still NEED page even with 4gb+ ram ,for errors like xp does?

Assuming you are talking about Vista 32

Well, if you care about crash dumps (mini or full), you will require a pagefile that is large enough to hold the entire memory (full crash dump).
If you do not care you can set it to zero (with 4GB of memory)
