I seem to recall someone* is supposed to have said that no one would ever need more than 640K of RAM. There are an awful lot of posters here using the same kind of arguments. Here's a hint for those posters. History has consistently shown such prognostications to be flat wrong.*Bill Gates is supposed to have said this.
