    Good article, but you did not mention PAE, and 32 bit (actually 36 bit, with PAE) OS’s often use 512MB of low mem and cause problems for the running app if it cannot malloc memory into the high mem area…

    Luckily, 32 bit kernels are becoming almost unheard of these days unless one is in a very specialized embedded environment.
