I upgraded from 8MB to 16MB about a 6 months ago. I'm seriously considering
adding another 16MB.
I run Win95 with the MS Office suite, CorelDraw3, Micrografx GraphicsWorks
(including their photo touchup package), PaintShopPro, and PagePlus2 for the
little bit of true DTP I do.
I also run my client's proprietary process control engineering software;
that's where I really need the extra RAM. They recommend 64MB to THEIR clients!
