Cheers for that, as i'm not a vista user (apart from in VMWare)i had no idea what it was.

Wonder if it actually works or if you are better in some cases with normal memory?

Must admit I'd never heard of it either.

It works as extra high speed cache for the hard drive , speeding up access to programs and the like , a bit of a precursor to full nand flash hard disks , these will become reasonably common as soon as the hard drive makers release their grip on the industry and realise that solid state is the way forward .

Yes I agree regarding flash memory.

I imagine there could be some practical limits with flash but setting such limits with IT usually brings forward some bright spark who just moves the whole thing forward, big time.

The spinning HDD seems very inferior tech relying as it does on moving parts. Mind you, how amazing it is they've continued to expand it's capabilities.
