comment Windows x86 physical memory is 24-bit?
@George2: That's the point: physical memory is 32-bit wide on 32-bit processors (actually, Pentium and newer 32-bit chips can address 36 bits, IIRC). My comment was to point out that physical bus size cannot be 24-bit wide

Yeah, but physical address space hasn't been 24-bit wide since the time of 80286, i.e. mid-eighties, almost 25 years ago.

comment Cygwin under Windows 7 x64
this is irrelevant to the original question, but just in case it can be useful for somebody, here are limitations of running in XP mode for me: a) x64 mode is not available in Win7 XP Mode b) there is only one CPU available there c) one particular tool works with the local disks differently than with mapped "network" disks, and therefore I need to run it on the main machine. All these problems have a workaround or can be tolerated, but the real solution is preferred

Yes. Also as Administrator (i.e. in elevated mode). Neither of them help :(

comment Should I use Safari on Windows?
When you look at the text as a whole, and not a collection of standalone letters, the dynamics of the text (i.e. ratio between its weight and spacing) and consistency of the page become important factors. Different people perceive it differently, no question about it. My eyes tolerate working with text rendered using Apple's method much better than working with text rendered by default Windows method. I measure it by the amount of strain and pain after hours of work.
