Windows SuperFetch is a technology in Windows Vista and onwards that is often misunderstood. I decided to delve into this technology to see what it is all about, and to dispel some of the myths surrounding this feature.

I obviously would like to live in a world where BeOS was the norm. Sadly, this isn't the case, and we're stuck with big lugs like Mac OS X and Windows, who both need large amounts of RAM to be usable.

I recently bought my dad a new iMac which came with 1GB of RAM. Dear lord that machine is slow because of the low RAM. My dad didn't like that at all - his brand new iMac was way slower and less responsive than his 2002 Windows 2000 box! I still need to order him some extra RAM.

So, that's the world we live in. I don't like it, but there's nothing I can do to change it. With that in mind, anything that improves thing - trickery or not - is welcome.
