Actually, I got the impression that he wanted to get a warm fuzzy from
someone telling him that his 4G would be utilized by the software and
not go to waste. But that's generally a bad thing, and the real answer
is you want the OS to make good use of your available RAM, not the
software. Linux does this, and quite well.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the 
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
