    32 bit Vista will still only be able to support 3 gigs of ram.

    What does this mean ? Having 3GB\4GB RAM will endup as 3GB for Vista ?

    If yes ? Any reason why so ?
    32Bit Operating systems only utilize up to 3gb of RAM. If your computer has more then that it won't register within the OS itself making the purchase of additional RAM pointless unless you plan to upgrade to 64bit.

    tmorgan, are you doing this via boot camp or VM? I have been trying to get Aero to run on my MBP with no luck at all. I am trying to run it in Fusion though, so that may be the issue!

    Apps built using Xcode on Leopard are capable of 64-bit addressing of up to 16 exabytes (2^54 GB) of virtual memory and 4 terabytes (2^12 GB) of physical memory (RAM).
