comment Is there a technical reason why 32-bit windows is limited to 4Gb of RAM?
@Kobalt Could you please explain "a 32-bit processor uses 32 bits to refer to the location of each byte of memory. 2^32" emphasis mine. Why do you refer to these individual blocks as bytes? If each memory address is a 32-bit address then where does byte which is 8 bits come into the picture?

comment What does the 'bit' mean in an OS
@yankee What did you mean by "since every address usually links to one byte"-(emphasis mine). Can you please explain it a little bit?
