Speed up your Linux System with Preload

Techtrob writes:

Preload is an “adaptive readahead daemon” that runs in the background of your system, and observes what programs you use most often, caching them in order to speed up application load time. By using Preload, you can put unused RAM to good work, and improve the overall performance of your desktop system.

Check out some of the numbers,

Application “Cold” Startup Time Preloaded Startup Time
Desktop Login 30s 23s
OpenOffice.org Writer 15s 7s
