a 12 Mbyte partition and  Mathematica crashes quite frequently.

i specifically went out and bought the RAM because i was experiencing alot
of crashes using system 7's virtual memory [which is definitely inferior to
the Connectix's system 6 virtual memory product] but the use of RAM didn't

than it was under 7.0 which makes me think its an Apple problem) 

In a recent MacWeek issue there was an announcement that there would be a
forthcoming upgrade in Mathematica with "improved speed and memory
management". This  indicates that WRI is aware that there is a Mac related
problem and is taking steps to correct it. hopefully no one will become so
desperate that they actually go to Maple or another inferior product in the
