Well, i didnt write it, i just found it online.

You very well could be right, but this article was also written a while ago.

So as we can see, there are some ups and some downs.

According to my instructor, 64 bit operating systems are capped @ 128gb of RAM. If you went with 64 bit, your RAM limitation would be dictated by how much your motherboard supports.

There's no place like /home.

Yes that is correct. 64 Bit is capped at 128GB. The 8GB i was talking about was the mother board limit as most mother boards available to the general public that are not server boards are capped at 8GB. Very few go above it.
