Topic: Windows Vista

#1. Application Virtualization - Introduced with Vista, creates application-specific copies of all shared resources. It separates the application configuration layer from the OS making deployment easier in some cases.
#2. ReadyBoost - Windows Vista introduced Windows ReadyBoost, a new way to add memory to your system. You can use non-volatile flash memory, such as a ReadyBoost compliant USB flash drive, to improve performance without having to add additional system memory. Superfetch, Vista's new caching scheme, takes full advantage of all system memory and ReadyBoost expands the available cache memory. This speeds up your computer because accessing a flash drive is significantly faster than accessing a hard drive.
#3. SuperFetch - Memory caching scheme introduced with Windows Vista that tracks what kind of applications you use and loads them into RAM so they can be launched faster. SuperFecth can use ReadyBoost to add to the available cache using a ReadyBoost compliant USB 2.0 flash drive. SuperFetch and ReadyBoost speed up virtual memory transactions.
#4. Windows Virtualization - The act of isolating or unbinding one computing resource from another. Windows virtualization adds virtualization services to the core Windows operating system at a fundamental level.
