I'd never agree on that, but that's maybe a matter of taste and
different experience. I can only judge on my own experience, and a PC 
never attracted me long enough to really judge about the difference. If 
it works, its fine, if it doesn't there is need for a change...

Virtual Ram is a really old technology, it has always built into any 
Unix system. There was nothing to trade for...

I didn't need too much of plug-ins yet... all my treatement is hand 
made... ;-)
And of course a soon I need more, to plug in more memory is simple 
enough (which was my original point, better get RAM, than Vista, if just 
memory is the concern... ;-)
