Better yet, has anyone ever been able to reproduce what was written here?

Curious.

A few times,

32bit 4Gb Memory Limit Explained

regarding RAM for 32 bit Operating Systems

Maximum RAM Read on 32 bit systems

and probably a few more that I missed.

Still comes down to you want to use 4 GB or more, use 64 bit.

You're right...

But it is interesting that the author states that "the impossibility of using more than 4GB on a 32-bit system is not true," as he was able to do exactly that. He did say also that he had to modify the kernel for Windows to recognize the ram above 4GB.

Anyway, it is an interesting read. If you really have [a lot] of time, take time to read the whole site. (@jorpe: It is headache inducing )

Regardless, he is wrong. For one, he was running a XEON with PAE, which is specially made to break that barrier.
And extremely expensive.

If you are using Linux, you can recompile the kernel to support more than 4GB on 32bit
