I ran WinXP for some time with half a gig of memory. Normally I had
two copies of TMG5 (beta and regular) TMG4, e-mail client, and browser
all open, also often Word and other programs. I was disappointed that
I couldn't seem much difference when I upgraded to a full Gig of RAM.
But my "test" was entirely subjective - I didn't try to actually
objectively measure any differences.
