In the end you need to look at the platform changes. Moving to a Microsoft platform is more than just comparing memory usage patterns. It's a lifestyle change in my opinion.

I do know that MSSQL will be much more aggressive in caching. At least in my usage. I will often see 6+ gb of memory tied up on just SQL from a 13gb database. But I also have a server with 10 highly active databases in MySQL none reasching the levels of data my MSSQL one and it sits fairly well on a machine with 4gb of memory.
