" I heard that Vista will only recognize your system having 3 gigs of ram but it was just what Jet was telling me about. "
This is a limitation of a 32-bit operating system Elph
It's not solely limited to Vista, but rather to all 32 bit
systems. Once you cross over into the 64-bit your system
can see MUCH more than 3GB of Ram.
Personally, I will stay with XP for as long as it suits
me to do so. I'm not about to go out and purchase another
Microsoft operating system just so I can game on it. Not
If / when XP dies, I will become a Linux kinda guy
I'm very, very familiar with both Sun and HP's flavors of
Unix ( work ) Linux will not be all that strange to me. I'm
just too damn lazy to build another system at the moment.
