    a question involving memory.


    i have pondered this for years.

    after you install an os (linux or windows), when you go to upgrade the ram, the performance does not increase with out reinstalling the os.

    is this true?

    thanks

    No, I haven't noticed it, for me the performance improves immediately. For example, last week I added another 64MB RAM to my dad's old P3 computer, taking its total to 320MB. The difference in performance was immediate without a reinstall of W2K.

    I haven't tried this with Linux, so I can't say for sure.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
