    What is the difference in XP mode within some versions of Windows 7 and using the free Virtual memory program that you mentioed in the video? Also would it really be worth the price to pay for VMware?

  2. In 20 years time we’ll be using Terabytes of ram as standard, and be laughing about ‘the good ole days’ when 4gb of ram was more than sufficient, and wondering how on earth we managed :).

  3. Texas Instruments 99/4A 32Kb in the early 80’s
    then a Commodore 64, 64Kb, then an Amiga with a expansion card to push it up to 1Mb.

    I still have AOL 1.0 on a 3 1/2″ floppy disk somewhere.

  4. I was using 1 GB until recently that i bought a 4GB ram laptop and is amazing, i can play and surf the web without problems so i guess 4GB could be enough, maybe some minor tweaks to stop some stuffs like unnecessary services.

  5. My first computer, a Sinclair ZX81, came with 1kb of RAM. I upgraded this to 16kb and thought this would be plenty. Had no idea what a gigabyte was and there was no internet to find out.

  6. My fisrt computer -back in the late 1980’s- only had 64 Kb and we asked ourselves the very same question…as with AD&D games: you can never have enough Hitpoints…or RAM.

  7. You mentioned in the this video that you had coupons for vmware. I would like to know how I can get one of those. I am looking at purchasing VMWare workstation to preview the new version of SBS Aurora. Thanks!
