[filmscanners] Windows Memory Mgt.

I have been told by a friend at Microsoft ("I have been assimilated" quoth
he) that W98 and 2000 were designed long enough ago that their memory
handling is not up to todays graphics demands.  Specifically, although they
can address large arrays of RAM, they can't handle the full size at one
time.  Windows XP is said to be better at this, although now that i have
converted, I have not noticed a difference when using Photoshop with
500-650Mb files using 1.5G of RAM.  That is not an optimal ratio of file to
RAM for Photoshop, but it's the best i can do.

BTW -- beware updating from 2000P -- you can't uninstall XP.  If you do a
plain vanilla install you will not be told this, nor will you have the
opportunity to create a dual boot system.
I found out the hard way.

Windows 2000 Professional has been mentioned, and I (vaguely) remember a
conversation with someone about Windows 98 not being able to address more
than 128Mb RAM. I do not know if this is correct, but I am going to try it.
