More about Windows ReadyBoost in Vista

Microsoft’s Jim Allchin has a good post on the Windows Vista Team Blog about how Windows ReadyBoost works. Tom Archer has some screenshots of what happens when you install ReadyBoost.

I like the idea of ReadyBoost, especially for the average person who is afraid to open up their PC and install more memory. The main issue that people have to worry about with ReadyBoost is the fact that many older USB flash devices will not be fast enough to support ReadyBoost. I have seen this myself with several USB 2.0 thumbdrives. I think that Microsoft is going to roll out a logo program that will let people know if a device supports ReadyBoost.
