Windows 7: 64bit Win7 7000 broken?

Windows 7 rel 7000 64 Bit

Does turning off the paging file really speed things up? I have 4gb RAM and just turned it off. Good idea???

It will speed things up a little, but turning off the pagefile will introduce a plethora of other problems, like out of memory errors when you run a lot of applications, or application that require lots of memory. (Windows Live Photo Gallery with 120,000+ images in the library eats 4GB ram for breakfast!)

It's best to leave the swapfile on, using automatic settings for best results.

Windows 7 X64

Personally for me the performance between Vista x64 SP1 and Windows 7 x64 is the same. I have not noticed any super increase in speed. Also my Laptop Vista x86 and 7 x86 is also about the same. 7 does seem to shutdown and boot a little quicker. 7 also has some nice features like the themes and taskbar grouping, but I think all that will get ported over to Vista at some point.
