Memory limitations??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm doing some homework for my Computer Networking degree and I want to know if operating systems such as Windows XP have memory limitations. If so, what are they or where can I research them? Thanks.

Yeah, operating systems do have memory limitations. Generally this depends on the type of OS (16-bit, 32-bit, 64-bit), but there are other aspects that play a role.

This MS article has some info about it... trying to find something better:
