From: Lukas Beeler
even if you get a 5% memory usage improvement compared to a
System x machine running Windows or Linux, it'll still be loads
cheaper to just double the memory in the System x machine, as
System x memory is roughly a quarter of the price ...

My understanding is that the real benefit of SLS is not that it saves memory, but that it greatly reduces the number of instructions required to swap between multiple-running applications.
