ReadyBoost and VMs

Love it! Frank just posted the common sense view on ReadyBoost and Virtual Machines with a nice graphic demonstrating the, as we say here, 'bleedin' obvious' :) Of course the problem with "common sense" is that it's stated far too infrequently and therefore is not 'common' enough.

Lot's of people have blogged about using ReadyBoost to "speed up" thier VM expierence. Yeah right!! It's of no help to ya whatsoever (when in the VM). Get yourself a nice fast hard disk and some real memory, oh and a few more cores or procs :) A trip back to the reality of computer science wouldn't hurt either :)
