Got the memory? Turn off Windows Virtual Memory and watch her fly

Kirk Pepperdine has been preaching the speed improvements of turning off Windows paging for many months now. You should really only do this when you have enough memory to cope with the all the applications you normally have open at one time.  Yesterday I upgraded my main memory from under 1GB to be a little shy of 2GB.  I then took Kirk's advice, turned off Windows Paging and boom, what a difference.

Eclipse no longer hangs if you leave it in the background and come back to it.  Applications switch in and out of focus with snappy feedback, and the hard disk light rarely flashes now.  It's a thing of beauty.
