Windows With Vista, Microsoft is addressing what's become a sad truth for most people: PCs run more slowly over time. Vista will automatically de-fragment hard disks, make better use of memory to more quickly load programs, and include a new performance control panel that will identify performance bottlenecks, according to the company. Elsewhere, ActiveWin hosts widescreen, high-res screenshots of Vista.

Or will this feature be dropped in a few months? Tsk.


Anyway, the problem is a combination of all the things mentioned already (fragmentation, dll liter, the registry...) and that makes it quite impossible for MS to fix it unless they're willing to make some major changes, and so far they've been dropping all of them so...
