The trend I am talking about has been happening for about 2 years, it is
all computer memory, not just PC memory. Even Kingston's Sun memory has
gone up, though maybe not as much.

Of course, that could still be Vista I guess. Announcing its release 2
years before it was going to be released did put a lot of "Vista Ready"
products on the shelve prematurely.

It's funny how much stuff got that label, and then people found out that
said hardware really isn't Vista ready after all.

*IF* it is a ramp up in production.  

Anyone know where RAM sales numbers might be published?
