Not quite. PAE can allow up to 64 gigs in 32 bit.
Not on Windows it can't, though. They don't enable PAE unless you have a server version.
Again, not quite. Windows XP (and others) you could enable it as a boot option (such as in boot.ini). Vista and 7 have it enforced disabled for licensing reasons (although I've heard there's a kernel patch to bypass it).
Okay, they let you use PAE in XP, but it's still restricted to 4 GB addressable RAM maximum on non-server editions. It's not set in stone, but it is artificially restricted by Microsoft.

But yeah, it's still not a limiting restriction right now. On a 64-bit system, a LAA 32-bit executable can address up to 4 GB of virtual memory, and I don't know of any games that go that far. As far as memory goes, they only have to move to 64-bit when that starts becoming restrictive.
