Fork Bombs and 64-Bit
I just noticed this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1832169
And remember trying a 32-bit fork-bomb on my 64-bit machine a long while back. Does anyone remember such an experience? Did your 32-bit fork-bomb crash your system? Or was the fork-bomb completed and ran out of memory, not crashing the computer?
