This is my second to last semester, and I'm now in the OS class.  I have a
question about page miss resolution.  Does the kernel use a global or 
local strategy to determine which pages get swapped out?  My teacher,
Victor Wallace, has done research on using global resolution strategies,
and has found it to be supperior, but he didn't know of any OS that
actually uses it.
