    LOL.. that guy has very poor typing skills.

    BTW.. this doesn't work. And virtual memory is not readyboost so this doesn't work.

    This is also temporary as windows will revert back to using the virtual memory on the hdd after a reboot.

    [Edit]Correction readyboost is not superfetch[/Edit]

    If you really want Windows like caching features you might be able to use preload in cygwin (preload is like Windows superfetch). I've not tested this, but depending on how good the underlying cygwin IO hooks are (i.e. whether it tracks outside of cygwin requested files) it might (should) track any files being loaded (dlls, exes etc), and hopefully can precache these.
    Of course you'd need to start up cygwin and preload as a service in Windows for this to work, and testing it actually is working won't be easy....!

    Oh and for Linpus/Linux just do:
    Code:
    sudo yum install preload
    I wouldn't recommend it on stock Linpus because the loading takes so long from the stock SSD it interferes with anything else you might want to do (i.e. on bootup you'd have to wait 30+ seconds for it to finish before you try to load anything!)
