I don’t know how much this stuff actually helps. I’d like to see some benchmarks. Does anyone benchmark this stuff, these kinds of tweaks?
Anyway, my work laptop is RAM-bound, apparently, and I’m trying to squeeze as much performance out of this thing as possible. Combine that situation with a corporate VPN (Cisco sucks.) and McAfee BS, you got a slowed-down PC. By design. Which is torturous. 🙂 To know that this is stuff that can be prevented and actual human beings choose not to do so is frustrating and makes me want to switch jobs.
