One of the many claims Microsoft makes for Windows Longhorn is that it wil launch applications 15% faster than Windows XP does currently. This is down to improvements in the Prefetch functionality. There's no need to wait until Longhorn arrives; this improvement is already in Windows XP thanks to Service Pack 2. It just needs to be turned on.
To enable super prefetch:
* Use a registry editing tool to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentCo ntrolSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters
* Insert a value with the following details:
Data Type: DWORD
Value Name: EnableSuperfetch
