There are many computer users these days who have bumped up against the end of their memories. Years ago, IBM 1800, 1130, and 7094 users discovered that 32K words of addressable memory simply was not enough. Today, minicomputer users are discovering the same thing. And so are minicomputer manufacturers. Some of the newest mini's can address 128K, 256K, 512K, or even 1024K (1M) bytes of main memory. The claim is that 16M byte addressing is right around the corner.
