Microsoft kicks off 'Windows as a service' with new Insider build


Re: Compressing and decompressing pages

"They've no doubt been working on this, but something makes me feel squicky just thinking about all the possibilities here."

Other OSs have been doing this for a while. It can work well but when you've got vast amount of RAM on tap it might not be quite as useful as all that. Trying to explain how Exchange and MSSQL do memory management is going to be a doddle compared to explaining how WiNzRAM and WiNzSwap have "stolen" memory.

I look forward to seeing their Out Of Memory Killer daem, sorry service, innovation next. Perhaps to be followed by the WinPF firewall innovation.

But let's face it: Who cares about that? They've innovated colour schemes again or something.
