the average now is 1GB and most gamers/enthusiasts have 2GB
It's not a problem for home users yet as very few people have more than 4GB of RAM
we'd better be ready

I don't think that 4gb of ram is unreasonable.
chances are you'll be grateful of it when your editing your documents, editing video and trying to surf the net all at once.
I believe 4gb is the way to go

My Quad Core C2D with 4gb of memory is working very well under Ubuntu 7.10.
My laptop, works well using Mint 3.1 32bit, all in all, it depends what you want from your PC/Server.
Like someone mentioned previously I enjoy using my PC to the max, using all my memory to make sure I never use my SWAP, which is soooo slow in comparison to RAM.
I am forever running in Pagefile under windows on my work pc. And it grinds to a halt.
Like I say, i don't agree that everyone needs 4gb of memory and 64bit, but it is useful if your needs demand it.. however I still feel that 2gb of memory is the minimum for a 32bit system.
