As far as I remember Windows got memory-mapped files starting at least with Windows-95. Surely the API is different, but it is straightforward to isolate the difference behind a tiny wrapper. The best thing about it is that since the memory mapping removes explicit reads/writes from the application, the end result is more portable code.
