Vista uses its resources more intelligently, with the tradeoff being it needs more resources to begin with.

I agree Vista is probably not the best choice for business users because of system requirements, but, that's not what this forum is about. For us enthusiasts with high-spec systems, Vista is where it's at.
A OS should not need to cache stuff that far in advance just to speed things up. A OS should have no issues opening programs on demand especially with people running 4gb of memory.
