Forgetting about 32-bit XP, Vista and all that stuff, under Mac OS X 10.4.x I get

Stata/SE 9.2 on a machine with 1 Gb RAM: maximum of 1970 Mb available (with matsize=400)

Stata/SE 10.0 on a machine with 6 Gb RAM: maximum of 2260 Mb available (with matsize=400)

These are 64-bit machines running a 32-bit version of Mac OS X. When I install Mac OS X 10.5, I will have a 64-bit OS, and when StataCorp releases a 64-bit version of Stata 10 to match, I will be in memory hog heaven.

I expect you could get access to quite a bit more RAM on your Intel box under any flavor of Linux than WinXP, and perhaps more than Michael Blasnik reports under Vista...
