using windowing without noticing any discomfort at all. The key is to use a system call to tell the OS that you don't need a range of pages any more so they vaporize from the page cache. Unfortunately, not all popular operating systems qualify as "proper OS".
I do exactly this in my app and it works nicely. These calls exist on at least Linux, FreeBSD, Windows and OS X, though the Windows one is a bit fiddly.
