I was at a Micro Center and was talking to an employee about RAM. He got to saying something about Carbonized software. Something to the effect that OS X only allows this type of software to see 99MB of RAM even though you may have upwards of 1GB ram. I asked if this was PC and Mac and he said it was just a Mac thing. He also said that he didn't know for sure if it was true or not, he said he saw it on a forum (maybe here? ) So if this is true with some apps, why bother having all these GBs of RAM if some apps only see less than 100MB no matter what? Again, I'm not an expert on this and I'm sure if carbonized was even the term he used.
