For PC's this is true.  But memory for high end systems, especially HP and
DEC with their high speed chips, is not dirt cheap.  Also I would be very
surprised if memory cost does not go up with the release with windows 97

I'd rather double the memory to server twice the number of hits, not to
run a later version...
