Remember in the olden days where if you have 4GB of memory, but some computers couldn’t use all of it?? Well, why with a relatively new computer (few months old), and Windows 7 RC (which came out Thursday) – does the 32-bit operating system only see 2.99GB on a 4GB machine?!!!
I’m not a fan of using 64-bit operating system unless I have more than 4GB, because there are some downsides. First, some applications don’t work correctly (like Flash) and there are lots of drivers that still aren’t available on 64-bit.
So I’m a little frustrated that after I got EVERYthing installed the way I wanted – I have to go re-install 64-bit, because I don’t really want to give away that extra 1GB of RAM.
Aside from that – I’m loving the Windows 7 RC!!
