Actually on Windows (before Windows 2003 Server 64bit), a single application
can only allocate 2GB of virtual memory, but you are right, the rest of
memory can be used by other applications, or by the OS file caching.

For example, we have a machine at work with 32GB of physical memory, because
we want to keep some database tables cached as much as possible, even though
the server can only use 2GB, the OS caching of the files makes a HUGE
difference in perf.
