What is ME's limit?

What is XP's limit?

98/ME will go higher than 512, it does freak out if you pass 768 megs without editing the 386enh section of your system.ini, it's stable again past that point once you perform those edits, but it's pretty useless to stuff much more than 320 - 384 megs in there, since it doesn't really utilize it well. Law of diminishing returns for most apps past 320 megs in Win9X....except for some huge video editing programs in which case 512 works well.
