My experience is that 2 GB on XP is roughly equal to 3 GB on Win 7 32-bit which is roughly equal to maxing out memory on Vista and sacrificing a goat every day. (grin)

Seriously, the upgrade from Vista to Win 7 is worth it for anyone trying to do real work, just for the performance boost. Just my opinion, of course.

Moving from XP to Win 7 is more a matter of support and security concerns, and in my opinion isn't worth doing on most existing hardware.

Sadly, my WDSCI 7.0 installation on Win 7 32-bit runs perfectly, so I can't use that argument to get RDP 8, either. Sigh.

That is the same amount of memory I have. If I have WDSC V7 running, I can't
get that much open. Two browser sessions(Multiple tabs), Outlook, Several
emails, 4 Explorer sessions, 4 5250 sessions WDSC. If I try to open anything
else, the system tends to take a long time and sometimes hangs. I am running
Vista though.
