    No, it is false. WinXP will theoretically address up to 16GB of memory, but most modern motherboards will only support upwards of 4GB unless you are looking at high-end server boards.

    Windows 9x has issues with more than 768, it won't boot. but there are ways around it, maxmem setting in msconfig is one of the simpler.
