[BioC] Memory limitations with AffylmGUI

Hi Malene,

Sorry, affylmGUI is not very memory-efficient yet.  Improving 
efficiency is certainly on my long list of things to do.  I 
would suggest trying the justRMA function in the affy package 
from the R command-line or trying affylmGUI (and affy/justRMA) 
on a machine with more memory.  

For small affy analysis, you can use your own laptop or desktop, 
but for larger analyses e.g. 80 chips, you might want to try to 
gain access to a shared Linux server with more memory.

Best regards,
