Switched to Server 2008 Standard x64 from Vista Ultimate x86 a few weeks ago and I am loving the new lease of life my puter has been given.
My only gripe though – and it’s a very minor gripe – concerns the time it takes to boot up… around thirty seconds longer than Vista. I know that x64 takes longer anyway because of WOW, but thirty seconds?
I know that Readyboost does two things: lets you use USB drives to help boot speeds, and rearranges Windows’ own boot files on the hard disk. I’m wondering if this ported Readyboost service can also optimise files on the hard disk? If yes, can’t wait for the x64 version!
