The limit doesn't depend on version, at least not in terms of what you
probably mean by version. Windows only offers a 3GB user address space on its
"higher end" editions, such as Advanced Server. Some applications can't deal
with this. Yes, technically this is a bug in the application, but it's a bug
that would not be triggered when running on a genuine Microsoft workstation
And yes, it should be configurable, or perhaps Wine should be capable of
detecting which apps can deal with a 3GB user address space (as apparently
executables can be marked to declare this), but as long as it's not
configurable, and Wine's not capable of detecting this, it seems to me that
the 2GB limit applicable to the desktop operating systems is the correct one.
