  1. 2.87gb seems a bit low, 3.3-3.5 seems more common. The 32 bit OS needs to reserve some space for hardware that is not otherwise accessible.

    Why not go to 64 bit?
  2. 32 bit will never have more than 4gb ram, it's a simple math equation.

    2^32 = 4,294,967,296 bytes = 4GB
  3. 2^32 is a myth
  4. What? You think there should be more - or less?
  5. I think we have talked about this before. It is just a kernel-limitation in non-server editions. 3rd party software is welcome to use the memory that Windows will not.

    Most of these replies are bogus. Go to Microsoft.com and search for this as they provide the answer. Just as a note, using 3rd party apps to hack the KERNL may leave your system totally open to attacks.
