Today I asked myself...
why the MSX2+/tR logo wrote "Main RAM" instead of "Total RAM" if the inserting of an external mapper shows the sum?

Probably because they wanted to suggest that it excludes VRAM.

Because it doesn't count the VRAM.

I say whatever term the BIOS that it is based on uses Smile. For both MSX2+ and turboR this is Main RAM.

I think it's because the MSX-DOS2 supports all Memory Mappers and it is included with the MSX2+/tR.
