While eBoostr appears to be a fine product that delivers on promises made, as does SuperFetch and et al. -- I can't help wondering with the ridiculous amount of RAM installed on so many systems if it might
not just be more efficient in some cases considering how many Workstation actually are used and the kinds of application run -- if all the elaborate automated memory management were just disabled (as well as other fancy clever automation), and the User just left all the applications he regularly uses running -- if more resonsive results might be achieved...
Many Windows Users that I'm familiar with have cultured habits of what I guess I'd call 'resource hygiene
' probably based on experience learned with systems with less available memory, and the performance hit from having too much running at once. But I see a lot of UNIX, Linux and OSX Users don't have this proclivity and have virtually everything they use running all the time... Windows is also strapped with a user interface that makes managing a lot of open applications less 'tidy
' and more manually intensive then some of the Linux Window Mangers like the TWM's; so this may play a role as well...
The exception to all of this would appear to be those those really resource intensive applications and games that 'need everything
', but then again: shouldn't Windows more efficiently manage resources of running
applications and not really benefit from cache and automated memory management offered by tools like eBoostr and SuperFetch if everything is always running?
