Windows swapping – What the fuck ?

Ok, can someone explain to me what is wrong with the Microsoft windows XP virtual memory algorithm team ?

Now, i have 2GB ram that is TWO FUCKING GIGA BYTES of RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY.
And on top of that i have 1 big proccess (Firefox) that with all it’s tabs takes 900mb virtual memory.
I also have Thunderbird that takes about 150mb.
All good, and i still should have about a giga extra physical memory, like the taskman tells me.
Can someone PLEASE explain to me, why on earth would the Virtual memory manager decide to swap out thunderbird ALL THE TIME when it has TRILLIONS of bytes in my memory just waiting to hold its pages ??!?!

EVERY FREAKING 20 minutes, when i get a new email, i have to wait a whole 5 minutes for the freaking windows to swap back thunderbird, becuase it can’t just leave it in the memory for some reason !

If at least they’d give me some control over thier algorithm i’d be find with it, but Nooo.. i have to be a stupid user that wants big colorful buttons and can wait 5 minutes to read his emails.
