4G Momory limitation for 32bit Windows?

I was been asked today :"my 32bit windows box has 8G memory. As we know, the max memory for 32-bit windows is 4G. are we wasting memory then?"

Good question. But the 4G limitation is only for one process during memory addressing. The OS can manage lager memory than 4G.

Here is the table

Windows XP Professional4G
Windows Server 20034G
Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition32G
Windows Server 2003 Datacenter Edition64G
Windows 2000 Professional4G
Windows 2000 Advanced Serve8G
Windows 2000 Datacenter Edition32G
