VA Research Linux Systems First to Announce Support and Shipment of 2 Gigabytes of RAM under Linux

Formerly, the stable Linux kernel on Intel(R) hardware was
restricted to supporting only 1 gigabyte of memory, and this new
advance brings Linux to the forefront of Intel(R) platform

VA Research CEO Larry M. Augustin said, “Advances like this show
that the Linux platform is up to the task of handling large
scientific and corporate data serving needs while remaining the
most stable, fast and reliable platform available.”
