I did after a while. It's recognizing all of it now. It DIDN'T on my older machine's initial install. (Circa vista's release) After a few gigs of patches, I could see 4gb register.
If this pc I am on now (upstairs) ever needed to be replaced, it would likely lose it's job to a macbook pro.
Note that apple builds on os/x, and as good as it was when it started, I know it's better now. My friends swear by it. This will be windows 3rd major reincarnation since os/x started.
