8 gigabytes

I just finished upgrading my MacBook Pro to 8 gigabytes of memory. That ought to allow me to run a few different VMware virtual machines at once (I use all this RAM to slice it up into virtual machines for developing software for different operating systems). In particular, I just bumped Windows 7's memory allotment to 2 gigabytes. Maybe it'll quit running like a dog...

Note, BTW, that WIndows XP runs just fine in 512 megabytes of memory.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
