Of course it would be Nice To Have™, but does anyone have any 32-bit
system with more than 4GB RAM to test stuff? If not, we can not
Again, deepest apologies for my laggard reply.
Yes, we would need a +4GB RAM machine to test the PAE end of it, but
any machine should be able to leverage the NX part of it. Agreed with
the Nice To Have assessment. I'm willing to accept the security risk
if it eases support requirements.
