"for example standard overnight cron jobs shouldn't need swap prefetch on a 1 or 2GB system"
Now I've been programming since magnetic drums were hip so I may be a bit confused here but it seems to me that I can remember a time less than a decade ago when a system didn't need a couple of gigs to run Linux well.
It seems that Linux may still be a little more efficient than Vista on most loads (but not Firefox) but back in the nifty nineties Linux was a _lot_ more efficient than Windows. In short, Linux has been getting worse faster than Windows.
