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every time a new Windows version is released, someone with too much time on his hands tries to install it on extremely outdated hardware.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.

I know that indexing doesn´t improve performance.

But then, I believe indexing does improve MY performance. If you turn off every bit of cleverness that is built into current OSes, you deprive yourself of a great deal of clever functionality that is designed to make YOU faster. I´m not telling everyone needs them, but it´s downright stupid to disable them without even knowing what could be their benefit.

What is more important - windows opening half a second faster or me being able to find anything in half a second? For me, it´s the latter. YMMV.
