  • I have been testing the OpenSuse 13.2 version and it is making a nice speed difference on my hard drives, in particular the slower green ones.

  • Such a needed project. I was surprised how bad ramdisk creation and management was with the Linux kernel until I saw this project many years ago and my eyes were opened to how good other other operating system's ramdisk management was.
