RE[4]: OSX does this

Member since:

"Mac OS X and some *NIXs do differently. They are slow to lunch the app, but when you quit the app, not all resources are flushed out of memory... So if you later decide to re-open the application, the application will open faster.

As explained in the article, Windows does that as well.

Of course, Windows Vista does it too, but when I said "differently" I was referring to Super fetch approach. Mac OS X does not have super fetch.
