  • What's the problem with writing to the filesystem?

    The filesystem != the disk. If you're quick (for certain values of quick) you can write to the filesystem from one process, read it in from another, and delete the data before the computer decides it needs to flush that data out to a physical device.

    This kind of stuff really is up to the OS. I wouldn't worry about it so much.
