nope, 32 bit Windoze machines are limited to 4G total, linux can use more on some CPU's and with the right kernel.
Microsoft in thier magnificence limit Home Premium users to 16GB, only Pro/Ultimate sers get to use more than that, most other OS's don't impose any such artificial limitations, but then again they cant sell you an artifically imposed upgrade since free+free==free
