Microsoft's Vista has a feature called ReadyBoost, that improves, hopefully, the performance of the computer with the addition of USB thumbdrives or HDD. Whilst the performance differs from each make and model of USB thumbdrives, some people see significant performance gains. So, is going to sit back and watch?
SwapBoost is an attempt at achieving what ReadyBoost is trying to do. Whilst still in its early stages, it is crucial that beta testers help improve this new tool.
Whilst SwapBoost is a script hack, I think a kernel-loadable module would be even better and more efficient. What do you say? Does Linux need such a feature?
