Right, and who would ever need more than 640K of RAM? Let's constrain the arbitrary limit thinking for DOS(windows) users and devs, not for linux. ;)

Well, actually, stupid arbitrary limits have long been part of the Unix experience. They're part that GNU set itself against, and I'm glad to say that it hasn't been part of the Linux experience heretofore, and Linux is all the better for it.

Very true. I really should used "legacy OS" instead of "DOS/Windows" in my complaint.
