Dear MacOS Lion...

I have 3.2GB of addressable RAM. Why do you need to grind to a halt and tediously page out a whole freaking GB when I go from VLC to Chrome (with only 4 mostly text tabs open and no Flash)?! Also you say you have 901MB left. Why are you going all VM on me in the first place? Snow Leopard didn't do this crap. How is this an improvement? Is Mountain Lion any better about this?
