That is a pretty big advantage. I could do without that RAM, but I
would not want to. I *could* use a 386 with 4MiB of RAM and still get a
lot of work done, it just does not make sense to do so.
I am no expert but my perception was this transition was less painful
than the 16 bit to 32 bit transition. We knew the switch to 64bit would
happen in our lifetime back then, so I don't see this perceived scam.
It was always going to happen. Technology advances, and not always
without pain. This was true 20 years ago and I expect it to be true 20
years from now. Change is uncomfortable, but it will always occur, it
is a good idea to get used to it.
