Andrew Hunter has an interesting post on the issues with large object heap on the desktop CLR. Visit http://www.simple-talk.com/dotnet/.net-framework/the-dangers-of-the-large-object-heap/

Side Note: .NET Compact Framework doesn’t support large object heap simply because it is primarily targeted towards embedded applications which has far lesser memory requirements.
