Multiple shared memory segments, NUMA, Linux and Windows

I bin learning fings, Oi have.

With position independent (i.e. or maybe e.g. shared memory) data structures;

On Linux you do not need support for multple shared memory segments *as far as NUMA is concerned*.

This is obvious really – you just turn on striping.

You do need support for multiple shared memory segments *just because*, i.e. the user may want this for whatever reason.

On Windows, you *do* need support for multiple shared memory segments *as far as NUMA is concerned*, to perform striping manually, which is how you have to do it under Windows.

You also need it for itself, as on Linux.
