thanks for the reply
does this mean that applications are knowledgeable and scale themselves accordingly.
so if there are 2 systems with system 1 having 128 MB RAM and a hard disk of 20 gigs and a second system with 512 MB RAM and hard disk of 40 gigs. then an application would use 50% of each RAM and get the rest from the hard disk
so an application say doom3, would use 64 MB RAM in system 1 and would use 256 MB RAM in system 2,
