All have different flavours - I only recently found out that FreeBSD actually returns the memory to the kerenl for feallocation after calling free(). I'm more used to the traditional Unix way which has a process always growing and not returning the memory until it exists, merely reusing it if freed.

That has always been the case for FreeBSD. From the looks of it, OSX handles it the same way.
