Video memory could be a hidden factor.
40 bits virtual memory is more memory than all the C-64's ever sold.
Ben.

That is an interesting statistic. What else is amazing is how much could be done with a 1MHz processor and 64kB of RAM.

I have now set the swap space set to ‘Windows manages’. I thought I had it set that way, but when I checked it was set to 6GB.

For some reason I am reminded of the time I recommended a 4MB RAM board be purchased for a 286 machine. All the apps the user needed to have running just would not work with the machine’s original RAM. The additional RAM was on a PCAT card not the motherboard.

What amazes me is how *little* we can accomplish, in comparison, when armed with a 4GHz CPU and 64 Gigabytes of RAM...

It makes one wonder where we are going with all this computing horsepower.
Artificial realities just around the corner.
