It will make all the difference on a box with 16GB. On a 32bit machine, you can use a PAE enabled kernel to allow the operating system to address all the memory, but you're still stuck with a 4GB per-process limit, which means if this will be a dedicated MySQL server, you're wasting 12GB of memory.

Why wouldn't Linux use that 12GB for applications and (more importantly) as a really big read cache?
