Jim Brandenberger <JBranden -at- P02 -dot- IL50 -dot- MICRO -dot- HONEYWELL -dot- COM> says in response
to Jane Bergens comments about resource usage by MS Word:

> The Graphic Device Interface (GDI) is the resource bottleneck. This is a
> dedicated memory block (Only 64 K bytes) that Windows provides for

> Microsoft saz, Windows 95 will fix all! It's hard ti ty[e wuth yout fingets

Windows NT also fixes the GDI segment limitation. (And it's available now,
as opposed to whichever year Windows 95 comes out officially.)
