Here is more info from MS. Not sure if there are any negatives.

memoryusage Value

Configures the internal cache levels of NTFS paged pool and NTFS non-paged pool memory. Set to 1 or 2. When set to 1 (the default), NTFS uses the default amount of paged pool memory. When set to 2, NTFS increases the size of its lookaside lists and memory thresholds. A lookaside list is a pool of fixed-size kernel memory buffers that the kernel and device drivers create as private memory caches for file system operations, such as reading a file.

I've just tried the tweak and can confirm some noticeable performance increase after rebooting in lauching programs. Placebo effect perhaps?

Thanks stormy13. I was wondering about this one. I hadn't seen it yet, so I was sceptical. If this tweak was that great "2X performance" it would already be implemented by all the SF members. Im pretty certain of that.

Most likely yes. This "tweak" has all the makings of all those XP Myths that wouldn't die, some of which are still posted around for Vista and 7.
