Or you could wait for Windows 8 Starter, which might have a 0GB memory limit ;)

Actually, you can use windows 7 32 bit with more than 4 GB
There is a PAE mode.

I'm not sure how M$ has implemented PAE in Windows 7, but a PAE kernel was also included in Windows XP, but only for data execution prevention (DEP)... it didn't allow you to access more than 4GB of memory.

That could be a real winner. The first Windows version guaranteed never to blue screen. :)
