They'd have to make system 64bit to do it and I doubt that's in their
immediate plans.
OTOH, I'm interested to see if they will make the onboard SCSI work >:-

Actually that's not exactly true. Intel added 'Advanced Windowing
Extensions' to their chips some time ago; with OS support and application
support, it's possible to address up to 64GB of paged memory. See, for
example,
http://www.sql-server-performance.com/awe_memory.asp

That said it's a dodgy hack, and I'd much rather QNX focussed on a 64-bit
port!! The question is, IA-64 or Opteron?? :-)
