Sorry for offtopic. Vista needs few days (weeks?) of use to prime its
readahead/preload¹ caches. It's slow just after install, but gets better
with time. One have to give this OS time for all its tricks to show.

BTW, I'm not advocating for Vista. Just be serious and don't treat Vista
with prejudice. Fedora is doing readahead also, but in less
sophisticated way. http://preload.sf.net seems to be dead and broken by
prelink. Why not learn how others are doing similar things?
