If one had such a machine, why would they install the 32-bit OS? Why
would they not just install the 64-bit OS and run Hyper-V and run Linux
in a VM where it would be significantly less likely to crash the system.
(This assumes that any system that could support that much RAM also had
the VT processor support to run HyperV.)
Also, I believe it was mentioned that coLinux itself has a hard limit of
around 1GB of memory. (I think this is a limitation upon how large a
contiguous chunk of memory can be allocated by a kernel-level process on
the 32-bit OS where the kernel itsel can only address 2GB and windows
itself obviously needs some memory.)
I'm not authoritative on these statements though...
