• And wouldn't that be nice? But there is one thing that has remained constant. As memory density grows, disk capacity must grow proportionately to keep up with that constant. It is the one thing the software designers never have a problem with, software bloat.
  • Not really. The programs allocate their temporary memory to use in the RAM. There can be a program which is 1KB on the disk, but when you load it in RAM and start running it, it takes up 1GB of RAM. Plus, if you open the same program multiple times then again you use up more RAM (You may think that is stupid, but it is very convinient to do when you are running multiple screens)
  • With something 2 TB of RAM you can indeed run many applications simultaneously, however it makes little difference what size hard disk you have.
  • these really have nothing to do with each other
