is this m$ propaganda?

if you open a file so large that you run out of memory AND swap space, it
kinda serves you right - you should be aware that resources are finite.

i'm sure there's no chance it would happen somewhere where it is
critical for the system to keep running - the sys admins will be well
aware of the requirements of the system and configure it to handle these
