Wanted: Succesfull story about using AWE for DB2 on Windows NT - IBM DB2

Does anybody have an experience of any kind of using more than 4Gb memory (Windows NT, DB2 v7, 8)? Does it work, did you get any perfomance improvement? I have found a tons of advice how to do it, but I am dying to hear a real story. Thanks, Lana...

    It might be simpler for you to move to 64-bit DB2 on Windows - this has
    true 64-bit addressing, so it doesn't need the tricks needed by AWE to
    address memory.

    You would probably do much better with Windows 2000. Not many people are
    still using NT. And if you can use Windows 2000 Advanced Server, it provides
    support for up to 8 GB of memory.

    AWE is best on W2K Advanced Server or Datacentre (or Windows 2003
    equivalents). NT is now past end-of-life, so you should not be investing in
    NT. W2K AS will get you from 4GB to 8GB. DCS will give you 64GB, so if you
    really need to resolve storage constraints on 32-bit windows, DCS is your
    best bet.

    It works, and you get better response when you can use it to to eliminated
    I/O due to memory-constraints.
