Many people say that 32-bit Windows can utilise 4GB ram maximum, because 32 bits equal to 4GB (2^32=4G), if users want to utilise more than 4GB ram, 64-bit Windows must be used.
I always doubted this statement but there had been no proof.
I now just found a solid proof:
Physical Address Extension - PAE Memory and Windows
The best proof is:
Windows 2000 Advanced Server - 8 GB of physical RAM
Windows 2000 Datacenter Server - 32 GB of physical RAM
(There are only 32-bit versions but no 64-bit versions of Windows 2000.)
I am so happy now that my belief was true, so I just share my view and the proof here.
