just installed swx2006sp03.4: 155mb just to show up

not bad. i just double-clicked on swx icon: no parts, no drawings, no
assemblies, no addons, nothing of nothing. just swx starting up and
showing an empty windoe.
i love people at swx company more than ever.
i wonder what amazing new features required this.

Hmmm. About 38,750 bytes per $1. Maybe not so bad?
I will give them their maintenance fees gladly, as long as I suffer no irritating TIME LOSS.

in usa. here it's less than that because it's far more expensive.
i understand that nowadays ram is cheap, but *IT'S NOT FOR FREE*!!! and, which is also worse, you cannot have 36gigs per workstation and you cannot even change your workstations every year/2 years to have newer mother boards which support more ram.
this is really getting out of hand.

I misunderstood. You are meaning RAM to load the SolidWorks program.
I thought a Gigabyte of RAM was only a couple hundred bucks at most. Is it not the same in Italy? Last comments I've seen on this Usenet group have noted 2-4 Gigs of RAM suit most projects, and only the largest projects need to go up from there (with newer hardware).
Ultimately, the project needs the right tools, and the project price has to pay for the tools.
I understand the overall cost issues, and I don't like paying "a lot", but I do remember the days when 3D CAD was anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000 per seat and ran on workstations that started at $30,000 per box.

Keep in mind Windows normally maxes out at 2Gb. There is a 3Gb switch, but it can be tricky to use and can have some nasty side effects. Considering how un-stable SW gets when free-RAM is low, I think this is a big issue. Brad
