Over at Slashdot is a link to an article done by a guy that managed to convince Vista to take his bead necklace and remove some clothing.  This is the second part of his 3 part look at the insides of Vista.  If you missed the first installment (memory management and more), you can follow the link at the start of the article.  Otherwise continue on to read about the various new “Ready-something or other” components new to Vista.
“Mark Russinovich takes a look at the Windows Kernel and the changes made in Vista. In this second part he describes the workings of the features SuperFetch, ReadyBoost, ReadyBoot, and ReadyDrive and how they improve system performance.”
