Hey does anyone know if the 32bit home prem vista. Lets you use a full 4gb ram now or does it just say that, on my recent update i noticed on system propertys that now it says 4gb ram rather than the 3.25gb or whatever it was.

Did windows do something good or just looked good????????

With SP1, Vista 32 bit will see all 4 gigs installed, but will still only be able to use ~2.75-3.25 gigs. It is a physical limitation of 32 bit OS (not just WIndows).

I think MS and major builders got tired of people installing 4 gigs of RAM and Windows telling them they only had ~3 gigs installed and called to complain.
