Yes, but for enterprise and e-commerce, 32gb of ram normally is required on some machine, for example, the database server for a airline/big multinational. They do thousands of transactions per second, and have a lot of records to keep in RAM. Also other things like fileservers and other network services benifit from more RAM as you move up to larger scale networks. For the people running Linux in their bedroom, or on a samba server somewhere in a small office, they don't need that sort of hardware, but in some cases, other people do.
