No, you missed the point.

Windows does not allocate RAM. It allocates memory space. It probably does some
work to make sure that a lot of the memory allocated is already in RAM, but when
you allocate 40MB and you only have 64MB RAM, that's a very hard thing to do.
That's why you see so much swapping.
