comment 8gb ram in 32bit operating system
@DavidSchwartz Then that is the OS using that much RAM, not the program itself. I thought you mean something like string filedata=readAllTextFromFile("C:\this_is_5G_large.txt")

@DavidSchwartz But you can't create an array of char (string) that is more than 4294967295 items. In your example "reading file", I don't think the whole file will be loaded to RAM completely, so that you can successfully read it

comment 8gb ram in 32bit operating system
@DavidSchwartz perhaps I didn't write that clear, but a single 32-bit program doesn't handle addressing beyond 4GB "virtual memory". When I write a program in C (Windows 32-bit) the pointers are 32-bit, isn't it?

comment 8gb ram in 32bit operating system
I think PAE just let the OS see RAM more than 4GB, but programs can only see "virtual" address, that means a 32-bit program can never use more than 4GB RAM

Windows "user" editions seems to limit the maximum amount of RAM you can use even with PAE, but those "server" editions don't. Still need to install another OS
