As I understand, 32 bit processes can only see 2GB virtual address space.

Does this mean, that each process can only use up to max 2GB memory?

Therefore, if I was to look at Task Manager under, any process that was listed there could not go above 2GB memory usage?

Or am I not understanding this correclty?

Appreciate any clarification :)

Please note that in Windows you can enable the PAE switch which will allow some Application to access more than 4GB even on a 32bit OS.
