I'm (for various reasons) currently "putting together" ...
running ... some (SafeDated/nVidia) T61 "machines" ...
Unlike the (cute ) T60 machines ...
the T61 machines can access more than 3gb RAM ...
(Apparently / Some) 32-bit Linux "distros"
can recognize/use four (4) ... or more gig of RAM ~
unlike (official ) 32-bit MS-O/Ss ...
Supposedly there is a Kernel/PAE Patch for 32-bit Win (Vista/7/8)
that would enable those 32-bit MS-O/Ss to "recognize"/utilize
MORE THAN 3gb RAM ...
Also/Supposedly the patch will/does NOT (any longer) work on "Intel©"/integrated MoBos
Would running a 64-bit MS-WindozeOS on a 4gb RAM system
be materially/noticeable "better" ...
than running a 32-bit MS-WindozeOS ~ that can only use 3gb RAM
i.e., is that EXTRA 1gb of RAM ... "worth it"
I know going from 512mb to 1gb RAM ... back in the/my XP-daze ...
and going from 2gb to 3gb RAM under MS-W7x86 on a T61
was/is certainly noticeably/materially BETTER
I personally moved to XP 64 bit back in the day and then straight to WIn7 64 after a small dalliance with Vista 64.
Its not about the loss of 1gb on a 4gb system but its to provide compatibility with 64 bit s/w and further I feel like Win7 32bit drivers isnt quite there?
Also I dont feel like supporting Win7 32bit as an o/s.
I mean it died out with the 'netbook' and WIn7 Starter and all that.
