    Do you mean actual fragmentation of physical contiguous memory? Or the slowdown caused by the lengthening of the allocation table over time (because in vanilla AmigaOS it is a linked list that is traversed every single allocation)? On anything Amiga-related people constantly confuse the two.

    MorphOS helped the first problem and completely removed the latter (AFAIR, anyway).

    And how do you even know your memory is fragmented and not simply allocated by stuff that can't be flushed?
