Who doesn't like a speedy computer? Whilst there are quite a number of hacks to speed up your computer, here is *another* one that has a different approach. The tool is called preload, a daemon that does with your system. Well, magic is pushing it but what exactly does preload do?
It monitors applications that users run, and by analyzing this data, predicts what applications users might run, and fetches those binaries and their dependencies into memory for faster startup times.
If you want the whole mumbo-jumbo behind preload, read the paper published by the author.
So now that you have it, what next? Here's a Techthrob article that provides an insight as to how to configure and use it. Pretty straightforward so why not try it out? I wonder if this will work with the Eee PC.
