is there a linux program that allows me to do the same?
maybe use usb or flash memory to fast boot linux?
ReadyBoost does not claim to add physical memory to your system; it takes memory from a flash drive and uses it as a virtual cache for your hard drive. Will this make your games, boot-up times, and file transferring faster? No. ReadyBoost takes advantage of the fact that a USB 2.0 flash drive with decent quality memory is able to send up small chunks of data to the CPU many times faster than a hard drive having to spin up and seek across the platter. Conversely, a hard drive is many times faster than a flash drive when accessing large amounts of sequential data.
You don't need that kind of BS for Linux They came up with that in Vista's case because Vista is so damn slow anyway. If you want your Linux to boot faster you better follow the links that were already given to you. You can gain a lot by disabling unneeded services. That's the route you should go and not try to reproduce some stupid Windoze experiments Micro$oft had to invent because their new OS sucks so much.jett wrote:your saying if i follow your instructions linux should ready boot. I dont want to use my usb drive for swap all the time,because that would be slower. I just want to use it for boot up, because its faster than the hard drive.
