Sergiy, when you have a minute could you please elaborate on point 4
of your post?

I am asking because I'm running 32-bit XP with 2G of RAM and I keep
having to kill background processes in order to free up enough
contiguous memory to set mem in the 900M-1G range when I do need that
much (it happens on occasion). I stuck with XP when I upgraded my
computer last year because I kept hearing horror stories about how
Vista was hungrier than XP, and I figured for my money I'd rather have
Stata taken care of than watch a prettier GUI. If I'm reading you
correctly, that was not at all a tradeoff I had to make. Too bad.
