3D Spotlight heeft een zeer uitgebreid artikel geschreven over hoe je je geheugenprestaties kunt verbeteren onder Windows 2000. Niet alleen standaard instellingen worden vermeld maar ook informatie over register aanpassingen komen naar voren, zeer zeker het lezen waard voor ons tweakers. Hieronder alvast de intro:
First of, the more RAM you have the better, 128MB RAM is ideally the minimum of what anyone running Windows 2000 should have. This OS, much unlike Windows 9x has far better Memory management, one reason for this is because its meant to, Windows 2000 is intended for business/server use, not as a desktop system. Windows 2000 also uses a Paging file, which for all intents & purposes is the exact same as swap file in Windows 9x, just a different name (pagefile.sys) & a few other subtle differences.
If you have below 128MB RAM or less then you really should buy more RAM. This would be of far greater benefit to you than anything else. Much like the Windows 2000 Services guide this one goes into detail regarding settings & such, although if you're like me it's nice to know why & what you are doing. This is also probably the most comprehensive/definitive Windows 2000 memory guide around in terms of topics, settings & definitions covered. With that, on with the guide.
