comment Is there a way to make alt+space work in chrome under ubuntu?
I'll check it out, it just seems odd that every other program works except chrome, leads me to believe it's a chrome problem, not anything else.

comment How do I link a project in Eclipse with the Git repository I imported from?
that action (file import) gets me to the same dialog box that I get when I import from the repository, same thing, but when I do it, it doesn't attach automatically for some reason.

I didn't do it from file import, I did it from the git repository view. I expanded the repository contents right clicked and clicked import... from the menu. I'll try it out your way. thanks.

comment Why does 32-bit Windows impose a 2 GB process address space limit, but 64-bit Windows impose a 4GB limit?
gotchya, okay, makes sense, thanks for the explanation.

let me take that back, I forgot we were talking about 32 bit environments here.

okay, I think I get it, but then don't all the user applications have the same problem context switching between themselves (the user application) and the kernel calls they make, since the applications have their own address space, that aren't the same as each other?

Can you point me to a webpage? I mean if the mmu does mapping of virtual addresses to physical addresses, and things like PAE allow you to page to more than 4 gig of memory anyway, and everything in memory can be shifted around on a whim, why does the OS have any harder time than user space applications?

from what I read it was to protect programmers from accidentally doing signed pointer math and getting unexpected results if one pointer had the high bit set and the other did not. Windows does not NEED 2 gigs of address space. What do you mean its ugly to use separate address space? That's what virtual memory is for.

why is 2 gig the limit? a 32 bit pointer can address 4 gigs of memory directly. I read a page that said you have to be careful doing pointer math on pointers with the high bit set, but other than that, why would there be a limit of 2 gig? Nobody seems to know "WHY?"
