Yeah, (w/ vista) no memory limitation with windows, as long as you
don't mind allocating 2 gig of the 3 gig limit for the desktop.
The trick is to avoid running anything but trivial applications.
And to reboot daily.
And to clear out the hundreds of thousands of worthless temp files
daily so that indexing via desktop search and DRM doesn't kill the system.
And to remind yourself everytime you see a worthless gl desktop
animation that this is an serious improvement.
