I think this threat is has no answers yet.

Indeed the 64 MB is lower as necessary on current computers. This could be higher.

MSWindows used to use as much memory as possible for caching. So MemFree wouln´t be a good value I guess. I would suggest at least for MSWindows to set it to  1/4 of the physical memory.
If other programs need memory too, MSWindows will swap.

Have fun

     I wonder whether we should introduce some kind of dynamic way of setting
     the default workspace, for example as a fraction of the RAM in the
     system.  Currently it always defaults to 64 MB.

I suppose we could read /proc/meminfo at regular intervals and make some
intelligent estimate on how to set the workspace.

I wonder what the goal should be?  To keep MemFree to a particular value ??
