Readyboost technology for Windows XP

BoostSince the release of Windows Vista, scores of consumers have downgraded to Windows XP, due to performance issues, instability, and the confusion that Vista's new dialogs and interface cause.

Despite all this, there are some new features that are worthwhile in Vista, such as Readyboost. Windows Readyboost helps make the operating system and applications start faster by using flash memory for cache.

Now, Vista refugees on Windows XP can enjoy this same functionality, thanks to Eboostr. With this third party application, one can set up caches on up to four devices, and it's compatible with all Readyboost compliant devices!

A free trial can be downloaded that works for four hours after each boot, or you can get the full version for just $29.
