Hardware, Embedded Systems "The most visible part of Windows Vista is the Aero interface, and while we can't deny that it looks very swish we find it very hard to get excited by a shiny new GUI. Instead, we're looking forward to new Vista hardware, which includes a new use for the humble USB memory key and much, much more. So what will the ultimate Windows Vista notebook offer?"

I'll be curious to see what you say, when the idea is copied onto other operating systems.

They (IMHO) won't be able as there is probable an MS Patent Application already in the USPTO's InTray.
Unless, you are Novell...

Why in god's name would you want to copy this idea onto another system? Using flash as RAM is really high on a the list of things you don't want to do. It's a far better idea to (gasp!) fix the VM and swap algorithms to properly handle high memory loads. Of course, given that Windows has been swap-happy for the last decade or so, even on large memory systems, I'm not holding my breath on that happening...
