Yes, this is very much true, Kitty. This is one of the reasons that if you're going to go w/ Vista, it behooves you to go with the 64-bit version as opposed the the 'normal' 32-bit version. The 64-bit does not limit the amount of RAM that your computer can use/see. The standard 32-bit operating system (whether it be Vista or XP) caps the amount of RAM it can use at @ 2.5Gig.
The 64-bit versions have no cap, for instance, I'm using 8Gig of RAM. While yes, it's overkill for the average user, RAM is dirt cheap right now and why now?
I see what you're saying, but why not sell both? There are so many people/companies that can't support Vista. They would rather stick with something that is simple, and that requires less memory. Why can't they just sell both until 2010?
