Memory overcommitting is a frequent OS allocation strategy.  When it
fails and some program eats all that is there and more, some process has
to die.  If the wrong one is chosen, the system can fail.

There are workarounds (like ulimits and stuff), but they tend to cause
operations to fail that could otherwise complete.
