No Personal Computer Will Ever Have Gigabytes of RAM

Man, I love stuff like this. An heated discussion from the dusty archives (1997 era) of the Usenet newsgroups, on the possibility of computers ever using RAM in the gigabytes range.

No personal computer will ever have gigabytes of RAM, just as no 
automobile has giga-gallon gas tanks.

And yeah, the poster of the above statement was a Microsoft employee.
