Windows As inevitable as the tides rolling in: every time a new Windows version is released, someone with too much time on his hands tries to install it on extremely outdated hardware. Sure, it won't be usable by any standard whatsoever, but it's still a fun thing to do. Of course, Windows 7 couldn't lag behind.

Why disable prefetching even on SSDs, really?

Yes, my Intel X25-E is ridiculously fast compared to a regular harddrive... but my RAM is ridiculously fast and makes the X25-E look like a snail.

Similarly, while I don't use Windows' search and it's indexer, I still use another indexed searcher (locate32) - because even though the X25-E is fast, indexed searching is *way faster*.
