Does anyone know the memory limitations of the different version of Windows 8? They had an artificial limit of 16GB in Windows 7. Is it gone in 8?

Microsoft assumes people that run over 16 GB of RAM are probably running (or should be running) the Professional SKU anyway. I'm with them on this one. I can't think of any reason a "Home" computer would need so much RAM, unless you just like high numbers.

Ram drives are fun for compiling, compressing, photo/video editing, etc.
