I thought it was 3GB max with an AMD processor, and 4GB with an Intel one?

1.25MB? I thought 895MB (mine) was small? what is a normal amount of RAM??

He made a typo, 1.25GB is what he meant... I was just making fun of it.

Hmm, that's the unofficial blurb from the computing front though, not MS.

I've worked for a long time with Linux and *urks* Windows systems. The restrictions and short sighted design choices are what I fight against at various places ;) . Blurb or not RAM over 1GB doesn't help much on XP systems unless you strip out anything vital :lol:

Just because XP doesn't use that much RAM (a system with 192MB is fine for windows XP), it doesn't mean it can't see it. My friend has an XP computer with 2GB RAM and it works fine, the RAM is seen and used by apps that need it. :? But you're so damn right about Linux being better than Windows. The only reason I use XP is that the software I know and love isn't available on Linux. :(

That's correct, which is why hackers like me and many others are trying to change that 8)

wow it's not often people call themselves hackers due to the negative connotations. some people like myself merely direct others and do a little work from their computers and windows is fine for us.

Unfortunately, people tend to get hackers confused with crackers. Quite annoying...

my kind of hacking involves a machette and the weeds at the bottom of my garden, some may call it barbaric I call it gardening (sorry off topic) anyhow shouldn't we be moving this topic back to east dock avoiding cracking compleatly (controversial ground) and OS disagreements (just trying to be a good moderator as my responsibilities are minor (running a private section that doesn't need much running) I thought I'd try to help other mods by being more responsible (sorry off topic again)

So true. I'm proud to be a hacker and I use the word in the correct sense no matter what people think. :yes:
