Its something that is not necessary.
Speeding is illegal and dangerous. Taking advantage of your full RAM capacity is neither. I fail to see the similarity there...

I hate to stoop down to this level, but you're the one who started this argument.

Modern computers run so fast that opening a program doesn't take 10 years like it used to anymore.

So why bother caching memory for? That is beyond me.
Hard drives are still extremely slow compared to the rest of the system. So unless you use SSD's Superfetch is the way to go.

are you kidding? so many invalid arguments being thrown around here.

there's nothing detrimental about using all the ram effectively. there's a whole slow of problems when going 220 kph..

if you don't like superfetch, turn it off. simple. jeez.

"Oh no! It uses all of your RAM! Don't you love buying more RAM and having XP.... well..... WINDOWS 7 SUCKS"

It doesn't slow down anything, it speeds it up. "Using" =/= taking/totally controlling.

Correction large sized hard drives are possibly slow.

My 250gb single platter Seagate is plenty fast.

Fast enough to operate decently, yes. I still end up crunching my 250GB and 500GB single platter Seagates though.
